Directed by Stacy Peralta | 2001

With Sean Penn, Jay Adams, Tony Alva, Bob Biniak, Paul Constantineau

"Pop history that blows your hair back"
—Toronto Star

This “enormously enjoyable, high-adrenaline documentary” (Manohla Dargis, LA Weekly) traces the history of the Z-Boys from their origins skating empty swimming pools in gritty 1970s Santa Monica (aka “Dogtown”) to their ascent as the ultimate in counterculture cool to their difficulties navigating the pitfalls of success. Wittily narrated by Sean Penn and directed with verve by Z-Boy Stacy Peralta himself, the gold standard of skating movies is Hoop Dreams for skate rats.
