Skatopia: 88 Acres of Anarchy

Skatopia: 88 Acres of Anarchy

Categories: Documentary, Sports, Action

Skatopia is an Appalachian farm where hardcore skating, punk rock and hillbilly culture collide. Mad-Max style demolition derbies and spontaneous car burning accompany all-night skate sessions. Pain is a badge of honor. Tony Hawk calls Skatopia a "rite of passage" for hardcore skaters. Skatopia's owner, Brewce Martin, dreamed of a place where he could live and breathe skating—a place where people forget their "outside" lives by plunging into high-energy craziness. The movie celebrates the freedom from everyday life that Skatopia offers, but it also takes a hard look at the flip side of Brewce's energy and charisma. No storybook hero, he can switch from inspiring visionary to bullying cult-leader in seconds. But his fierce pursuit of his dream will inspire even those who have never touched a skateboard.
