I Am Thalente

An exuberant skate documentary with a social conscience, I AM THALENTE follows Thalente Biyela, a 17-year-old homeless skateboard prodigy in South Africa who catches the eye of the professional skate world when a DIY video of him goes viral. A group of top Pro skaters and figures in the skate world (including Kenny Anderson and legend Tony Hawk) offer Thalente support and an opportunity to pursue his dream of skating and competing in the U.S, rising above his circumstances and helping him shape his own future.
