On February 10, eminent representatives of the world film industry gathered in Los Angeles at the Oscar-2020 ceremony. Among the laureates of the prestigious award was Ukrainian producer Elena Andreycheva, who received a statuette for the best documentary short film “Learning to Skateboard in a War Zone (If You Are a Girl)”, writes 24tv.ua
“Learning to Skateboard in a Warzone (If You're a Girl)” is a 40-minute film that has already thundered in Hollywood, winning the BAFTA-2020 award.
The tape "Learn to Skateboard in a War Zone (If You Are a Girl)" tells about the activities of the non-profit organization Skateistan, which has existed in Afghanistan since 2007. This is a kind of school for girls from poor areas of Kaluba, which gives teenagers the opportunity to learn skills in reading, writing and mastering a skateboard. It should be noted that the female population of the country has no right to participate in sports competitions.
Ukrainian Elena Andreycheva and Carol Dysinger produced the picture and received their first Oscar. It is worth noting that Elena Andreicheva was born in Kiev, but has been living in London for a long time. She wrote about this on her Online. There she works on the development of British television, creating documentaries on sensitive public topics - imprisonment, human trafficking and immigration.
“The most important aspect of my work and my motivation is a real desire to find out what the life of the people represented in my films is like,” Elena Andreicheva noted in her blog.
