This 3-film program includes a strikingly lensed satirical documentary about Montreal’s skateboarding culture and the very first skateboarding movie ever.

 
The Devil's Toy

Directed by Claude Jutra
1966
HDCAM

 

This strikingly lensed, satirical documentary describes—with cheeky faux alarm—the birth of Montreal’s skateboarding culture.

 
Skaterdater

Directed by Noel Black
1965
35mm

 

Noel Black’s (future director of the cult film Pretty Poison) Cannes prize-winning short is the first skateboarding movie. It’s the story of a young skater’s first crush set to a surf rock soundtrack.

 
 
 
Fruit of the Vine

Directed by Coan Nichols & Rick Charnoski
1999
BetaSP

 

Shot on Super-8, this ode to the daredevils who skate empty swimming pools is “a seminal work of scraped knees, bruised elbows and big air" (Rolling Stone).
