The Green Cape

Red Bull presents a new film highlighting the struggles of the skate scene in Africa. We start by meeting Ibrahima Paye who talks about the challenges of the terrain and lack of facilities. With only one (paid) skatepark in Senegal, skateboarding is considered a luxury. Luckily with some small but dedicated groups of skaters across the continent, Africa continues to build it’s own scene.

Directed, Filmed & Edited by Patrik Wallner
Produced & Photography by Sam McGuire
Research by Luke Jackson
Produced for Red Bull Media House
