Deathbowl To Downtown


Coan Nichols and Rick Charnoski

This documentary narrated by Chloé Sevigny tells us the east coast story of the skateboard birth. It is the New York version of the Lord of Dogtown.

We learn what was Zoo York at the time and where it comes from, there are archives of the first pool ever ridden in the Bronx (the Deathbowl), we also see the mythic but not longer existing Brooklyn Banks…

We understand how skateboard together with art, tricks and local brands evolved in the late 70’s until recently, with the urbanisation of the city.

This is an interesting documentary with a lot of contributors such as Larry Clark, Lance Mountain, Mark Gomez, Javier Nunez…

Here is the trailer:
