MADE IN VENICE takes you on a rippin’, shreddin’ ride with the skateboarders of Venice, from “raising hell” on the beach in their teens to turning pro and putting “street skating” on the global map. But their biggest challenge of all wasn’t becoming skateboarding legends, it was about getting what they dreamed of, and really wanted… a skatepark on Venice Beach for the community and the pro skaters of tomorrow. For more info:
Review by Venice Paparazzi’s Alex Stowell:   “Made in Venice is a history lesson of how the V got where it is. There was over 40 years of footage, some never before seen. Taking the viewer through the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s to the current day, it covered the massive effort to get the skatepark built, and highlighted those involved. This film is an essential piece of history, acknowledging and paying tribute to the ground soldiers whose tireless efforts brought to fruition a skatepark on the sand that millions now enjoy. Know your history and honor those who came before you to create the world you now enjoy.”
