In 2005, in a rural village situated in the heart of Ethiopia, a man named Israel Dejene brought home a gift that he had received while studying abroad in Sweden. This gift was a skateboard.

The film “MEGABI” documents Israel’s life growing up in Ethiopia, the struggles of poverty, stories of redemption, and how one board sparks life into a local village while indirectly inspiring a global movement.

This film is truly “A STORY OF HOPE THROUGH SKATEBOARDING”.
