A special matinee screening of Jessica Edward’s pioneering documentary SKATE DREAMS followed by a conversation with Skate GB’s rising star Lilly Strachan and 1970s skate legend Thea Cutts.

SKATE DREAMS is the first feature documentary about the rise of women’s skateboarding. It profiles a diverse group of women whose pursuit of self-expression and freedom has helped create an international movement.

The story spans the trailblazers of the 1980s and the next generation of Olympic contenders as they defy industry gatekeepers and fight for professional equality. SKATE DREAMS showcases the charismatic personalities and indomitable spirits of these amazing talents on and off their skateboards.

Following the film, join Team GB skater Lilly Strachan and pioneer skater Thea Cutts in a conversation with SKATEBOARD exhibition Assistant Curator Hadeel Eltayeb to reflect on themes embedded in the film including skateboard communities, mentorship, empowerment, women’s struggle for equity and more.
