Deathbowl to Downtown

April 29, 2010

An excellent documentary about the history of skateboarding as seen through the eyes of New York skaters (rather than the more common East Coast skate scene). Starting in the 70’s with graffiti pioneers like Futura, Haze and Stash, the original Zoo York, and the birth of hip hop, the film follows skating all the way through to the 90’s. With a focus on street skating, the movie also covers the beginning of cool brands like Supreme.
