Waltz is a short skateboarding film done by Spencer Legebokoff looking through the lens of finesse, quick feet, and style- opposed to hefty drops and massive rails. It looks to loosely parallel skateboarding to forms of dance by following a mainly untraditional soundtrack graced by the genre of jazz, while still retaining the classic skate-film feel and it explores the moods of skating at all times of the day- whether it be a sunny afternoon or a late-night lurk.
You can catch this projection on Thursday 27th at the Brioni hotel in Fažana from 20 h.
Filmed almost entirely in the West Kootenay region of BC Canada, no cobblestone, granite, or marble is in sight- spots are few and far between, rough, and require much more of a hustle to skate. “Waltz” looks to accentuate and beautify skateboarding as individuals manipulate and move through space in ways that are graceful and organic.
We all hear news about Palestine every once in a while. Still most of us don’t realize how tough life out there is. There is nothing simple about this place. The West Bank is a landlocked territory near the Mediterranean coast at the Middle East. When the founders of the one and only Palestinian skate camp invited the Absurd team to visit their project we didn’t think twice about going there.
Yalla Yalla is a short documentary about the SkateQilya summer skate camp located near the city of Qalqilya, Palestine.

Screening is set in Fažana’s old square on Friday 28th from 20:00 h.
Building DIY skate obstacles on every stop on the way and skating them on the way back while traveling with an Ape Piaggio. Who does that!? Well, Simone Verona and Giovanni Grazzani from Dumb Skateboards just did! Check out Dumb Ape Tour on Friday 28th in Fažana’s old square and see how this endeavor went down!
What we do is skating, trying to film with all the friends from the team, make some videos sometimes, sell to the shops when we have time and use the company as an excuse for our dumb projects!

Here are a few words for the edit:
Four of us took a trip to Maui, Hawaii in 2016 with a loose idea to film and document our time there. Filmed on Video 8. Our camera got ran over fisheye forwards in the first week, luckily video 8 cameras are only around $50. Please enjoy the long lens footage we scraped together in the last couple weeks. Featuring Leo Macdonald Oulds, Reuben Cantere, Keanu Robson, Jacob Johnson, Zak Gold. Filmed and edited by Keanu Robson, a skateboarder, and artist aged 23 from Manchester.
That is what Keanu said about the film and we can add that he got a local nickname. From now on you can call him Keanu Reeves. Do that on Friday 28th in Fažana’s old square Piazza Grande.
DJ Figlio at the ramp full of tunes and golman caffe full of booze (and maybe some ping pong). That’s the Branimir after party on Friday. It’s a night you will probably not remember.
This project was a collaborative effort between like-minded people I’ve met over the years. The idea behind Simple is that skateboarding, the passion and the culture surrounding it is what’s pushing you forward and laying the groundwork for future generations.
Brothers is about the metaphoric circle that is life and shows specific periods during the day that aren’t complete unless they’re viewed as a whole and shared with your brothers. This film was shot over the last year and a half and uses a mix of older, nostalgic moments with a soundtrack that is closely connected to the theme and the individual personalities of each skater. Shot and edited by Nino Jurlina, Brothers is playing on Friday 30th at the Piazza Grande in Fažana.

What with world travel, the comp circuit and wanderlust (refusal to get phone credit), it’s hard to pin our crew down, but filmer Jackson Davis has been hot on their heels throughout the Eurozone and beyond, VX in hand.
