Stacy Peralta makes a welcome return with a personal film looking at the group of talented skateboarding teenage misfits that he cultivated into a highly influential empire. For most of the 1980s, the Bones Brigade blasted the industry with a mixture of art and raw talent, becoming the most popular skateboarding team in history. They created the modern skateboard video, and pushed skate progression into a new era, setting the stage for a totally new form of skating called street style. Tony Hawk, Rodney Mullen and other Bones Brigade members – as well as Peralta himself – provide a surprisingly moving account of a formative decade in their lives, and the energizing of a young sport which had struggled to maintain its popularity. Accompanied by a dizzying range of archive and home movie footage, Bones Brigade joins Peralta’s Dogtown and Z Boys as both an entertaining and illuminating history of the sport.
