Film Fridays – This Ain’t California

This Ain’t California is a hybrid documentary about skateboarding in 1980s East Germany. The film melds fact and fiction—it stages archival footage alongside reconstructed “footage,” and memorializes a main character who may or may not have ever existed. Still, with its punk soundtrack and energetic storytelling about the unknown history of underground GDR skate culture, the film captures the universal spirit of youthful rebellion.
