Vintage film starring Torrance's Imperial Skateboard Club

I wasn’t going to say anything about this film- and let it be watched on it’s own merits. But I do think there is some info that is well worth sharing.

Released in 1965

Winner, best short film Palme d’Or 1966 Cannes. First prizes in Moscow and Venice Film Festivals.

The skaters were The Imperial Skateboard Club of Torrance, California.

Cinematically I think it is brilliant.
