(September 28th, 7.00 p.m. / 28. septembar u 19.00h)
Zatvaranje festivala će biti obilježeno urbanom pričom o mladim ljudima koji su uspjeli svoj očaj pretočiti u nedovoljno poštovanu formu izražavanja – skateboarding. Na rubu propasti, ovi klinci su odbacili ‘mainstream’ američku kulturu, te uspjeli pobijediti nasilje u porodici i ozbiljne socijalne i psihološke probleme. Projekciji filma „Bones Brigade” će prisustvovati i redateljica Stacy Peralta, te voditi diskusiju sa publikom.
Synopsis: In the 1980s,a gang of disenfranchised, but weirdly talented kids rejected mainstream American culture such as baseball, football and the traditional sports to follow a loser activity and redefined "winning" in the process.
Mentored by Stacy Peralta, a former world champion skateboarder, the "Bones Brigade" began in 1979 as commercial skateboarding was on the verge of dying off. But Tony Hawk, Rodney Mullen, Lance Mountain, Mike McGill, Tommy Guerrero and Stevie Caballero had nowhere else to go. The anti-establishment world of skateboarding was the first comfortable environment many of them had ever known. Focusing their controlled desperation into a disrespected art form allowed them to overcome abusive homes, pulverizing lack of confidence, abandonment issues and social isolation.
