A TRIBUTE TO ONE OF THE FIRST SKATEBOARDING FILM
Montreal, 1966. A shoulder-mounted camera. A skateboard. Claude Jutra makes one of the first skateboarding films, The Devil’s Toy. One of the originators of cinéma direct, Jutra didn’t just create a film about the “victims of intolerance” as the opening credits state, his film unintentionally defined the early history of skate cinema.
The Devil’s Toy Redux rails against the standard model of how stories are told and consumed. The original film is reimagined by fourteen directors from around the world.
