Afghan Girls Skateboarding Film Wins Bafta Award

The short film "Learning to Skateboard in a Warzone (If You’re a Girl)" won the British Short Film award at this year’s Bafta Film Awards on Sunday at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

In her acceptance speech, Carol Dysinger gave thanks to Skateistan, a nonprofit organization founded in Kabul in 2007 by Australian skateboarder Oliver Percovich.

Skateistan provides outreach to Afghan kids from impoverished neighborhoods, and with disabilities. From Kabul, the organization has expanded into several other countries.

According to Skateistan’s website, the program has reached "over 1,500 children and youth each week in Afghanistan, Cambodia and South Africa, with more than 40% girls taking part in programs."

Carol Dysinger has been a feature film and documentary editor for the past 25 years. She made the feature-length documentary "Camp Victory, Afghanistan," which is about the Afghan National Army and its partnering with US forces, which premiered at SXSW film festival in 2010.

The film has also been nominated for an Oscar.
