i am thalente ( 1 X 60' or 1 X 90' )
Thalente Biyela from Durban, South Africa, is about to turn 18 and needs to decide what to be when he ‘grows up’. Homeless since age nine and illiterate, skateboarding provides escape to Thalente, giving him a way to express himself and access a new family in the skating community. An internet video of Thalente reaches pro-skater Kenny Anderson who offers to take him under his wing if he makes it to America. Thalente puts his heart and soul to the test to rise above circumstance and shape his future.
