King Skate

Available on Garage
The first feature-length documentary about the rise of skateboarding in Czechoslovakia presents a gripping tale of the search for freedom in a society stifled by the communist regime. Unique archive shots set to a driving punk soundtrack (The Clash, Sex Pistols, Killing Joke) introduce us to the cult masters of the board and their never-ending party ride through the grey days of Normalization.
Starring Petr Forman
Director Simon Safránek
