Film Screening & Discussion | Wayward Son

  • The Green Room #410, 10310- 102 Ave NW Edmonton, AB, T5J Canada (map)

The Green Room, in collaboration with Convert Connect, invite you to join us for the screening of the highly-acclaimed documentary “Wayward Son”, followed by an intimate evening of conversation on finding faith, loss of identity and the journey of reconciling the two. 

Film Synopsis:
Jordan Richter grew up in a broken home. Despite the odds stacked against him, he became a professional Skateboarder at the young age of 16. Shortly after turning pro, he converted to Islam and was told by religious clerics that earning an income from skateboarding was not permissible. Dedicated to his new faith, Jordan quit his career as as professional skateboarder. 

15 years later he finds out that he was misinformed. 

In this intimate portrait film, we follow Jordan (37 years old) as he attempts a return to the world of professional skateboarding. This is his story.
