The Skateboarding Revolution

MUBI Special

Lords of Dogtown

Catherine Hardwicke United States, 2005

Yesterday we presented a documentary portrait of the seminal Zephyr Team of skateboarders, and today we follow up with the narrative-fiction rendering of their truth. An electric cast lead by Heath Ledger & Emile Hirsch backed by an energetic visual sensibility–this is pop filmmaking at its finest.

Dogtown and Z-Boys

Stacy Peralta United States, 2001

At once a chronicle of an era, the birth of a subculture and the evolution of a sport, Dogtown and Z-Boys is realized by one of the former Z-Boys with a genuine sense of lived experience of the time and place that is subject. A graceful and exuberant portrait of the 1970s American counter-culture.
