Concrete never had so much personality

Absolutely brilliant film about the most unique skatepark in the world. Having been someone who skated Rom in the 80's, 90's and again in the last few years this film stirred so many memories and reminded me just how much it has shaped my love of skateboarding. Beautifully filmed and edited, you don't need to be a local, you don't need to be a skater, or BMXer, to appreciate this and really understand that this place s more than just an expanse of worn concrete, its a community, a refuge, a place to escape and so important to the scene it supports.

AN AMAZING LOOK AT A CULTURAL ICON

I admit I may be a little biased because I'm in it, but that aside, Matt has done an epic job of capturing the sprit of ROM Skatepark and the people that helped make it the most Famous Skatepark in the world! It's not just a well directed and edited journey thru time, its a monument to a place that has impacted millions of lives!
