ourscreen: Dogtown and Z-Boys

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 70s heyday, its decline during the 80s, and its eventual (and highly lucrative) return in the 90s.
