"A vivid immersion in the hidden skateboarding culture of the former East Germany."
—The New York Times

This bold, punk rock-inflected documentary/fiction hybrid uses Super-8 film, archival footage, animation, and reenactments to tell the vivid story of the East German skateboarding subculture that you never knew existed. Depicting skateboarding as a form of spirited rebellion (the GDR labeled it a “risk to domestic order”), This Ain’t California is “an engaging, scrupulously formed look at alternative lifestyles in the wake of political and social duress” (Slant Magazine).
