My Name is Baghdad

Seventeen year-old Baghdad lives in São Paolo, a city of a million inhabitants. Her home is filled with strong and empathetic women and she spends her days on the skate ramps. As the only skateboarding girl, Baghdad must be strong and she has to fight for her place in the gang, in the city and for justice. Everything changes, when she meets a gang of girls, from another part of town, who also skate. This pearl of a film takes us on a world class journey of resistance, solidarity, skating and hanging out.
