#ADetroitFilm Trailer

This isn’t strictly a skateboard film but it does look good and there’s glimpses of a board in there. Created by Jordan Garland, the film aims to highlight the positives going on in a city that looks in decline. He partnered with artists, skaters and BMXers to tell a different story about the city to the one portrayed in the media… Or that’s what the interviews with him say.

I would question the need to focus on the destroyed elements of the city in order to portray a different perspective. But this is just the trailer and maybe there’s a point to showing that at the beginning. Anyway, worth a watch.
