10 years of To Ni Hec video

 

Obsession 2009, Tomaž Šantl‘s To Ni Hec is one of the most influential skate videos in Balkan 2000s era. An amazing skating with an even more amazing soundtrack with the Film crew packed all together. We can’t choose a better place to celebrate its 10th birthday right here on Vladimir.

History will be written again on the 26th of September on Thursday night at the hotel Brioni in Fažana.

Krzysztof Godek

Krzysztof Godek (1990), a skateboard filmmaker and photographer from Poland.

I hate it but I’m addicted to stack fresh clips.

The idea of this video, titled If You don’t skate – don’t start, was to collect the best possible polish footage during 1 year of shooting and focusing only on that. Living in a van and filming all day, every day, going to various cities all around Poland (mostly Warsaw) and close surroundings like Prague, Ukraine, etc. and shooting skaters from 17 to 40 years old. Quick moves, fresh spots or new ways of skating at popular spots, stylish landings only, quite heavy selection of footage, hip hop…

I try to film only fresh, interesting stuff. I just want to make a video that I’d like to see myself. I hope You’ll like it and find out more about our scene.

Take a look at this independent Poland video on Friday 27th of September at the Piazza Grande. Screenings start from 8pm.

Kirill Korobkov secret exhibition

Kirill Korobkov had sent us some photos for Vladimir but he didn’t know about our plan for his exhibition so he is also on the hunt! This show titled Point and shoot is secret! It’s hidden somewhere in Fažana. And you have to find it to check it out. For the duration of the festival, we are gonna give you hints so stay in the loop with our website and facebook page!

Here are a few words about it from Kiril:

I like to think of traveling as the best university. It gives you knowledge and opens you eyes on places you’ve never heard of. It is also the most entertaining way to learn things and facts. Traveling helps you to understand better even yourself. Traveling and skateboarding is a powerful combo that makes both things even better. Skateboarding takes you to different places. Traveling makes skateboarding a better tool to discover our world. The proverb says that traveling is the only thing money can buy that makes you richer. After traveling with skaters for around 15 years I am not going to argue with it. We don’t remember days but we remember moments.

Becoming an object by Urška Preis

Becoming an object is a process that holds in its essence a productive contradiction, it’s a critique of a modern society, where everything alien or deviant gets reduced to a grotesque, marginalised object. The main focus is in a so-called ‘tramp stamp’, a phrase that’s transformed from meaning a sexually promiscuous female to a scarred consequence that comes from expressing an act of resistance, which is being a skater.

Urška Preis (1992) is a visual artist, musician and music journalist born in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Exhibition is set for Thursday night in Kasarna!

Pandora’s box by Luka Pinto

Pandora’s box is volume one of a project Luka Pinto has been working on titled Crew Report. The video documents the Jersey scene between 2016 – 2019. It features Glen Fox, Ryan Cunningham, Dillon Catney, Roberts Krums, Eduardo Da Rocha, Jeremy Jones and Luka Pinto amongst many friends.

The video is called Pandora’s Box and the name is an idea that i had about Jersey looking like a neat little package of a happy clappy island, but in my view, holds a darker side where people are obsessed with money and become bored here so smash the booze and drugs.

Pandora’s box plays on Friday 27th in Fažana at the Piaza Grande.
