This Ain’t California (15)
Thu 01 Jan 1970
Germany, 2012, 90 mins. Marten Piesel
This Aint California redefines the documentary genre as director Martin Persiel takes original clips of the ‘wheel-board-riders’ straight out of the East German scene in the 1980’s and mixes it with animations and interviews of today’s skating heroes. A film that shows life in the old German Democratic Republic as it has never been seen before.
This Ain’t California offers a vivid immersion in the hidden skateboarding culture of the former East Germany.
