Mockba Life

On Friday 27th at the Fažana old square Piazza Grande we are watching Mockba Life by Paul Labadie.

First you get the brewsky, then you get the bread, then you get the vodka.

Bread in this case meaning clips and photos… It was beer if you were thirsty and vodka to celebrate… That’s pretty much how it went down this past summer when the Vans Europe crew headed to the Russian capital for two weeks. After Pfannman made sure everyone had their Russian visas in order the crew assembled in Moscow on June 21, Go Skateboarding Day. Max Pack and Romain Batard were on hand to film, Davy Van Laere was there shooting photos and the crew was large! We’re talking a big crew of Europeans (and one American) consisting of Daniel Lutheran, Victor Pellegrin, Axel Cruysberghs, Yeelen Moens, Albert Nyberg, Val Bauer, Joseph Biais, Kale Wiehn, Thanos Panou, and Pepe Tirelli all flown in and of course the Russian locals Kirill Korobkov, Roma Ivanov, Alex Krasniy, Boss, Vova Pavlov, Tolia Titaev and others were on hand to share all the amazing new Moscow spots (many built in the past 4-5 years due to the 2018 World Cup). And of course, the crew got that bread! It was like a bread factory… Edited by Paul Labadie (who would have been on the trip also had it not been for the birth of his new daughter) and packed with excitement is “Mockba Life”. So sit back, grab some vodka and enjoy.

You Slid Through

You Slid Through is capturing the adventures of four back seat drivers – each with an impeccable eye for lane placement in left-hand drive vehicles – through the mountainous vistas, and terrifyingly burly transition of the Pacific Northwest. Featuring Hallford, JThaxx, and Sox. Filmed and edited by Jackson Davis. Buckle up on Friday night in Fažana starting from 8pm!

Branimir after party

When all is done and done for the day it’s time to head for Kasarna because from 11pm Friday 27th starts the Branimir after-party with the local Fažana funk master DJ Kool S!

Slappin’ some vinyls!

Static XX

16MM STILL-TUNNEL SHOT

It is our great pleasure to announce the 20th year anniversary of Static video series multimedia exhibition that will take place at the Kaštel in Pula on Saturday night after the cinema projections.

The first Static was made in 1999 and who would have thought that the project would grow for over 20 years and hopefully even more.

Be sure not to miss it!

Julian Furones

Julian Furones was born in the Spanish city of León in 1984. When he was 17, he left his parents home to experience life in Barcelona where he worked as a pizza chef and dedicated his free time to skateboarding. He had been drawn to photographs as a visual memory aid ever since leaving his parental home. Nowadays he lives in Hamburg and uses photography every day as a personal diary. Julian’s photographic work is composed in a chaotic mix between his personal life and the people of the street.

The exhibition opens the Saturday program, 28th of September at the Kino Valli (Valli cinema) in Pula starting from 7pm.

Skate Nation by Paul Botwid

Stockholm Skate Nation is working with skateboarding as a tool for finding a way into society. On Saturday 28th we are watching Skate Nation by Paul Botwid at the Kino Valli (Valli cinema) in Pula starting from 8pm.

When Sayed, Mohsen, and Hazrat first arrived to Sweden as refugees, they knew nothing about skateboarding – now it’s an important part of their lives.
