Director Statement

Moving Meditation is at the same time heartbreaking and faith-restoring, in that it shows the systemic racial inequalities faced by so many people globally, while simultaneously showing the significant benefits of leisure activities like skateboarding. It is our hope that viewers come away from this film having a newfound respect for skateboarding, while also being encouraged to stand against police violence and racial injustice.
