AFS Virtual Movie Club – July 21st: “Dogtown And Z-Boys”

The Aurora Film Society Virtual Film Club brings you “Dogtown And Z-Boys” for our July 21st discussion.

In the summer of 1975, modern skateboarding was invented in the Santa Monica and Venice Beach areas of California. The young members of the Zephyr Team, sponsored by a permanently stoned surfboard store owner, revolutionized the sport, performing acrobatics and crazy stunts on skateboards that had until then been seen as fancy scooters. They became famous, they made a lot of money, they grew up, and one of them, Stacy Peralta, made a 2001 documentary about them named “Dogtown And Z-Boys”.

We invite you to join us via Zoom on July 21st at 7pm for analysis of “Dogtown And Z-Boys”.  We have added a link in the pulldown menu under the Virtual Movie Club button to make it easier to participate in our discussions every month.

Check out the selected films for our theatre screenings too.  Subscribers and their guests returned last month in large numbers for our screening of “Women On The Verge Of A Nervous Breakdown”.  Join us this month for “Dead Man”.
