2005 / 111min / DCP

DIRECTOR: LARRY CLARK

CAST: JONATHAN VELASQUEZ, FRANCISCO PEDRASA, MILTON VELASQUEZ, EDDIE VELASQUEZ

Clark’s first foray into digital filmmaking is an odyssey that passes through the variegated terrain of Los Angeles, following a crew of South Central Latino skateboarders from Guatemalan and Salvadoran families as they slash their way through the posh environs of Beverly Hills and Santa Monica, goofing off, flirting with intrigued rich girls, and attracting the ire of cops and uptight lily-white homeowners. An unusually tender film for Clark in its portrayal of youth solidarity, and quietly political in its implications.

Screening as a part of our Larry Clark series.
