Short Film: MOVING MEDITATION, 9min., USA, Sports Documentary

As a youth growing up in Washington D.C., Eric Johnson found a place of belonging within the skateboarding community, but his identity as a black skateboarder put him into a circumstance that almost cost him his life.

‘Moving Meditation’ is a story of adversity, resilience, and ultimately, self-love. Through dynamic personal narrative and archival footage, Eric’s story conveys both the benefits of a skateboarding obsession, and the risks associated with recreating in public spaces as a person of color in America.
