Movie Info

Brothers Tas and Ben Pappas, two boys from Melbourne who took the skateboarding world by storm, defeated Tony Hawk and crowned International World Champions within a year. Skateboarding came naturally to the Pappas brothers, but success was a different story. In this unflinching, never-before-seen account we witness the dark consequences of Tas and Ben's rapid success, their intense fraternal bond and their journey from the pinnacle of their sport into a downward spiral of self-destruction. This documentary features fascinating interviews, first person accounts and archival footage, and is a searing account of what happens when raw talent and extreme personalities collide and tells of a tragedy too incredible to believe.

Once again, we are reminded of the way that the US manages to defang, monetise and institutionalise its own initially thrilling subcultures.

Candid and clear-eyed, this doc will wow boarding fans but has something to offer to the unconverted too.
