LORDS OF DOGTOWN (2005)
director catherine hardwick (THIRTEEN, TWILIGHT) takes on the tale of the z-boys, a group of surfer skaters growing up in santa monica in the 70s. the z-boys essentially made skating what we know it to be today, bringing their surfing-based style to form the foundations of contemporary skateboarding.
written by one of the z-boys, stacy peralta
stars one true bae heath ledger 💖💖
produced by david fincher (FIGHT CLUB, SE7EN)
based on the acclaimed documentary DOGTOWN AND THE Z-BOYS
its 106mins so perfect for people with short attention spans, and will be a chill screening where you can move about. the film will be subtitled.
after the film there will be a chance to skate for all those who want to, and a chance to watch and hang out for those who don’t want to. there will be more info on this coming soon.
for those who don’t know, a skate jam is a chance to meet, skate and show off some sweet moves
obvs skateboarding has had a bit of a renaissance over lockdown and if you didn’t check it out, somerset house did a sweet mini exhibition on the history of skateboarding in the uk. the event was called no comply: skate, culture and community and you can find more from google arts and culture here.
