This inspiring trailer is a call for some crowd funding to help further the incredible story of Thalente Biyela. Thalente is a fantastically talented skateboarder from Durban, South Africa, who has been homeless since age 11.
Because of his homelessness, he hasn’t had any schooling since age 8, and is unable to read, write or perform basic mathematics. Growing up, he endured abuse from his step-father, until he struck out on his own.
Thalente calls the opening of a skate park in North Beach, Durban, “the best thing that’s ever happened to me.”
