|An Evening of Skate Videos
Thursday, October 15, 2009
In honor of the MoMA retrospective Spike Jonze: The First 80 Years, PopRally has invited producer and photographer Patrick O'Dell (of Epicly Later'd) to create a special compilation of seminal skateboard videos from the 1980s to today. Jonze, whose own contributions to the genre will be featured, notes that, "Skate videos have been a big influence and a big part of what I've done for a long time. They are how I got into film, actually." This unique screening is followed by a conversation with legendary skateboarders and filmmakers, including Jonze, Lance Mountain, Greg Hunt, Jake Phelps, Ty Evans, and other surprise guests.
Afterward please join us upstairs for a special performance by NO AGE.
The program begins promptly at 7:30.
