The Black­board

Pula / Valli cinema / 24 / 9 / 2016 / Film

Mar­quis Brad­shaw’s debut doc­u­ment­ary film The Black­board exam­ines what it means to be black in Amer­ica, through the lens of skate­board­ing cul­ture, which has become socially accept­able among black people only in recent years.

Pro skaters Jabari Pendleton, Karl Wat­son, and Ron Allen (one of the first black pro skaters and one of the first skaters to ever receive major cor­por­ate spon­sor­ship), are telling their own story, without any fil­ter but their own.

More about the film on the Black­board web­site.
