People are saying…
An inspiring story of building an empire with your own rules.
– Denver Examiner
Completely even-handed, the film is… something that really needs to seen to be believed.
The film left a mark on me like a tattoo.
– TJ Brearton, Lake Placid Film Festival Programmer
Skatopia gives visitors… a taste of the absolute freedom they think they want.
– Rolling Stone
It’s what you learn how to skate for… its living.
– Dustin Dollin, Pro-skateboarder
A feature documentary that goes inside one of skateboarding’s most mythic places…Skatopia… a rural Appalachian skate scene so extreme that MTV’s bad-boy Bam Margera fled the property on his first visit. A volunteer army of skaters and hillbillies have built this “sovereign nation” where they live free from society’s rules.
The movie follows Skatopia’s owner and self-declared dictator of anarchy, Brewce Martin, through an obstacle strewn year as his radical twist on the American dream is challenged by bill collectors, a rag-tag labor force and a stint in the regional jail.
A fun, frightening and inspiring look at one man’s fierce pursuit of his dreams.
