Lords of Dogtown (3-Jun-2005)

Director: Catherine Hardwicke

Writer: Stacy Peralta

Music by: Mark Mothersbaugh

Producer: John Linson

Keywords: Drama, Skateboarding, Los Angeles

A band of rebellious young men popularize extreme sports in 1970s Venice, California.

Standing as a fictionalized account of real-life events, Lords of Dogtown focuses on the Z-Boys, a thrill-seeking band of masterful skateboarders whose blend of skating and surfing techniques in the swimming pools of unsuspecting 1970s-era Los Angeles-area suburbanites paved the way for the United States' eventual "extreme sports" obsession.
