Another love letter for Vladimir at Medium skate mag.
Every time, the most important part of the experience is the human factor, consisting in meeting not just the locals but also crossing paths with packs of other visitors from different horizons.

You know what is beautiful? People coming back.
Vladimir film festival documentary filmed and edited by our dear friend Aymeric Nocus. There is nothing more to add that has not been said in the film. Enjoy!
Vladimir is now a crucially federating event, abolishing geographical and political borders for a moment just long enough for as many skateboarding enthusiasts as possible to share energies by the means of underground skate video premieres, documentary screenings or various types of performance shows and exhibitions in – more often than not – odd locations in a region best described as lost in, if not completely out of, time.
