Good news LA! Tonight the Levi's Film Workshop is presenting a screening of skate videos from the past three decades at the Vista Theatre. After the video watchin' a slew of industry A-listers like Spike Jonze, Lance Mountain, Ed Templeton, Tobin Yelland, and Patrick O'Dell will participate in a panel discussion on the videos and their work.
It sounds like it's going to be every bit as good as O'Dell's skate video retrospective at MoMA a couple of years ago, and maybe better, because it's free. And like at MoMA, Patrick is selecting the videos, so you know they'll only be playing the cream of the crop. Patrick once told us his favorite videos are Memory Screen, Video Days, Fucktards, and Mouse—he's got it all covered, artsy fartsy, legendary (they're all legendary, but you know what I mean), hesh, and funny, respectively.
Unfortunately, getting into this thing might be tough. General admission is already filled up, but you can RSVP for the rush line right here and snag the guy who stayed at the bar for one more drink's seat.
To get you in the mood, below is Fucktards in its entirety.
