Sasha Protsenko is a saxophonist and one of the top players in the Ukrainian skateboarding scene. Born To follows his trip to Barcelona where he spends his time practicing the saxophone on lazy mornings, shredding decks down the narrow alleyways of the Gothic Quarter, and cruising through the city’s sprawling subway system… Only to do it all over again the next day.

“I tried to show how jazz and skateboarding culture can exist together in one person,” says director and producer Pavel Buryak. “The saxophone is meditative and helps you journey into the subconscious. Then there’s skateboarding, which is part of the road to self-discovery and real courage.

”With Sasha dressed in clothes from Ukrainian streetwear brand Support by Poustovit, Born To won Best Fashion Film at Fashion Film Festival Kyiv earlier this year. The director adds, “My goal was to immerse myself in Sasha’s reality and show that life is easier than it seems.”
