Grinding the country

Grinding the country by Olivier Lambert is a short documentary about skateboarding in a small village in France. With less than 1500 inhabitants, Chaulgnes is the typical French country village. At the end of the ’90s, the arrival of skateboarding has changed the lives of the inhabitants. And has launched generations of riding and punk-rock music lovers.

The screening of Grinding the country takes place in the Valli cinema in Pula on the 28th of September starting from 8pm.

Dno

Dno is a new video by our Russian friend’s Absurd skateboards. We asked them to tell us a little about this clip.

I took a little break to make sure we have this new Absurd clip. This week we finally went to the destination we wanted. It’s a small city called Dno. Dno literally means botttom. Maybe it’s the same in Croatian. This year with Absurd we were pretty much at the bottom with no boards and no idea how to keep doing but somehow manage to put it together and keep it going. So, we decided to make fun of the situation and go to a city called Bottom which is very small and obiviously quite shit for skateboarding. You got to be at the very bottom to consider this a skate spot.

Dno was filmed by Barabaka and Mikas and edited by Barabaka and it premiers on Friday in the old Fažana square Piazza Grande. Screenings start from 8pm.

Reactions

Dávid Mikulán is an intermedia artist who graduated from the Fine Art University, Budapest. Amongst numerous group and solo exhibitions, he has collaborated with the Conceptual Soundproductions Budapest, Kolibri Theatre and the Hungarian State Opera. His multidisciplinary works reflect on how public spaces have an effect on social structures.

If accidentally we had to explain to UFOs what Eastern Europe means, we are now in an easy position. Simply place them in a comfortable chair and start this video.

Reactions is made by skateboarders in Debrecen and it’s all about the low-key, depression, discomfort, and the compulsive destruction of another’s joy. It draws on a defective perception of the public space, which necessarily leads to a lack of community experience, depression, loneliness, alienation. The movie takes place in a world where everyone has their own panel to get home and get drunk, beat your family members, stare at the TV or cut your blood vessels. Keep the streets quiet, abandoned, let the trash blow in the wind because it can be tossed out the window, because the streets are public, so it belongs to nobody.

Check this one out on Saturday 28th at the Valli cinema in Pula starting from 8pm.
