Visual Traveling is a group of skateboarders and filmmakers that travel around the world taking videos skateboarding in unique locations.
For this short film, they were invited to Iran by the only person in the country that actually makes skateboards. Despite everyone having passports, it was not an easy trip. The American skateboarders were the only two not allowed to skate in certain parts of Iran.
The group say it was amazing to get into the country and not only skate in places most people don’t get to see, but also to capture it on film. Visual Traveling made a roughly 30 minute short film of their trip, which also included stops in Georgia and Turkey.
