Southern California, early eighties. Sun and surf and skateboards. Bones Brigade: a group of young teenagers whose only ambition is to spend all their time on skateboards. Period. This is generally considered to be a sign of total lack of ambition – a dead end. Today these guys (Tony Hawk, Rodney Mullen, Steve Caballero, to name a few) are considered legends. Thirty years older, they tell what it meant for them to be taken seriously by adults who understood the value of what they loved doing and encouraged them to just go for it.
Ex-skateboard champion-turned-filmmaker Stacy Peralta follows up his hit DOGTOWN AND Z-BOYS with this film about the most famous skate team ever. BONES BRIGADE: AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY bears Peralta’s personal stamp, with generous measures of rare archive footage of the Brigade’s awesome achievements. There is only one word that adequately describes the feeling you have after seeing this film: Respect.
