Skateboarding in East Germany


A skateboarding culture in the former East Germany? This Ain't California is a documentary film celebrating the hidden East German skateboarding culture. Even if you're not a skateboarding enthusiast, this movie is a fascinating look at three young men driven to excel. There are breathtaking displays of nose wheelies and ollies, including entertaining sequences filmed in Berlin's Alexanderplatz during the mid-1980's. It's worth a view just to see how Berlin has changed since reunification.
