51zero voyager film screening: Urban Stories
Dogtown and the Z-Boys is a thrilling story told by the surfers come skateboarders featured in this independently made documentary.?This is an historic, no-holds-barred, behind-the-scenes look at the birth of a cultural phenomenon, an engaging portrait of “accidental revolutionaries” whose mythology as expressed by themselves and those they influenced is far more entertaining than any even-handed version could ever hope to be. Sub-titled “The Birth of Extreme”, this documentary takes a look at the transformation of skateboarding from its former image as a land-bound pastime for surfers to its status today as an extreme and acrobatic sport in its own right. Starting from the California surf community of Dogtown, the film follows the evolution of modern skateboarding through it’s 70’s heyday, its decline during the 80’s, and its eventual return in the 90’s.
