Ska8-or-dieWEYLAND

Jocko Weyland presents a selection of rad skateboarding videos with a live improv-accompaniment by shredder JLownsbury & friends. Tonight’s second act is Gus Van Sant’s underappreciated skater feature, Paranoid Park. In this film, an unsolved murder at Portland’s infamous Paranoid Park skate park brings detectives to a local high school, propelling a young skater into a moral odyssey where he must not only deal with the pain and disconnect of adolescence but the consequences of his own actions. One of the most darkly intense films of Gus Van Sant’s fascinating career.
