============================================

2019 VFF Opening Night includes a short before the feature:

STREET BOY (2016)

Directed by Ben Duffy

25 mins

Synopsis:

Anders Nordlow is the searching for sugar man of skateboarding. He is a creative genius on a skateboard, but yet, unless you live in LA and have skated with him…you most likely have never heard of him. I met Anders back in 2009 while filming my first documentary, we are skateboarders…I recognized then that he was starting to do out of the norm tricks….but as the years went by I would see the progression…and I realized his mind was like no one else's Ive ever met. Anders has never had his own filmer, but when I told him I wanted to make a documentary on him, he gave me 76 gigabytes of footage just of tricks of himself. Thats probably enough to make 25 parts. I wanted to find out how he went from being just another kid from LA who could do any normal trick, to possibly being one the most unique skateboarders alive.

VANS OFF THE WALL Presents THE TONY ALVA STORY (2019)

Directed by Coan "Buddy" Nichols & Rick Charnoski

54 mins

Skateboarding did not start out as a rebellious, anti-authority lifestyle activity. One of the key figures in the early evolution of skateboarding from a wholesome, contest based "sport" into the freewheeling art form that it is today was Tony Alva.

At 61-years-old Alva, the oldest professional skateboarder in the world, is considered by many to be the godfather of modern day skateboarding. Alva’s brand of aggression and bravado in the 70’s set the stage for the way skateboarding would be forever defined.

Vans’ The Tony Alva Story chronicles T.A.’s humble beginnings on the streets of Santa Monica to his rise to superstardom as part of the legendary Z-Boys, his inevitable drug-induced implosion and his ultimate rise from the ashes to accept his rightful place as a beacon of hope and inspiration for generations of skateboarders the world over.
