“Stick close to the concrete. Jam through the space. Keep it moving. Skate!” Writer, journalist, DJ, and freelance filmmaker Šimon Šafránek shot his first feature documentary about the rise of skateboarding in Czechoslovakia – a charmingly cheeky yet wise, melancholy, and engaging account of the search for freedom in a society stifled by the communist regime. Unique archive shots set to a driving punk soundtrack (The Clash, Sex Pistols, Killing Joke, Visací zámek, Miro Žbirka) introduce us to the cult masters of the board – Ivan Zobák Pelikán, Petr Forman, and Luděk Váša – and their never-ending party ride through the grey days of Normalization.
