Baghdad is a self-assured teenager with her heart in the right place, but she has to fight hard for elbow room in the male-dominated skating community in São Paulo, Brazil. On the home front, Baghdad is surrounded by strong female figures, so the contrast to the harsh environment around the skate park is palpable, where most things happen on the boys' terms. Read more

One day Baghdad meets a group of girls who are equally passionate about skating. This turns Baghdad’s world upside down, giving her the motivation to take up the fight against macho culture.

My Name is Baghdad alternates between gravitas and everyday life in a seamless way. Accompanied by improvisational dialogue and a remarkable soundtrack, My Name is Baghdad is a powerful portrayal of what it is like to grow up as a girl in a male-dominated environment.
