This Ain't California

Skateboarding under the German Democratic Republic and after: former skaterbois tell stories of wild parties and friendships.

This Ain't California

In the 80's, his friends called him "Panik". They hardly saw Denis since, and now he's dead - fallen as a soldier in Afghanistan. They meet again at his funeral and reminisce what it was like not to fit into the state of workers and farmers. Denis and his friends were skateboarders and an annoyance to authorities, because this trend from the US was not just a way to spend time, it was also a protest against the system and an expression of youthful freedom and rebellion.

This whimsical, quirky and fun documentary about the skateboarding scene in the former German Democratic Republic uses archival footage for its tribute to freedom and youth. A hit at many of this years' film festivals, including the Berlinale and the Shanghai International Film Festival.
