Hey all you Toronto peeps! It’s time to revisit one of our favourite films from Hot Docs this past year as we have teamed up with the Bloor Hot Docs Cinema to give away five pairs of passes to see the new Stacy Peralta skateboarding documentary Bones Brigade: An Autobiography on Friday, November 30th at 6:30pm!
“A follow-up to his award-winning doc Dogtown and Z-Boys, Stacy Peralta brings us back on board with his famous ‘80s skateboard team, the Bones Brigade, a staggeringly innovative band of misfit kids who forever changed the sport. Tony Hawk, Rodney Mullen, Steve Caballero, Lance Mountain, Tommy Guerrero and Mike McGill formed a motley crew of young teenage outcasts committed and obsessed with their art form. The Bones Brigade, helmed by an 1970s ex-skateboard champion, became the most popular team in history. Through the invention of tricks that remain iconic today, they revolutionized skateboarding, rescuing it from its status as a pastime thought to be over and turning it into the billion dollar industry it is today. Bones Brigade is the next chapter in a story of seven young kids whose spirit and dedication helped define a part of popular culture.” – Charlotte Cook, Hot Docs
