Featuring a Q&A w/ Lead Actor Robert Boerleider, Director/Actor Maximón Monihan, and Producer/Editor Sheena Matheiken


25 years ago, at a halfpipe contest somewhere in Europe, two of skateboarding’s biggest loudmouths first met. Now the glory days of youth are in their rearview mirror, with only the drudgery of adulthood on the road ahead. This pre-apocalyptic road movie documents the coast-to-coast journey of two washed-up skateboarders across present day USA.


Boerleider is a chocolate complected jokester from Amsterdam – imagine the love child of Dave Chappelle and Mr. Bean. He wants nothing more than to see America, a land of mythic proportions for this European. His buddy Monihan, the palest of pink skinned pro-skaters from America, once crowned Thrasher Magazine’s “Most Hated Skateboarder of All Time”, is much more cynical about his homeland. Hitch a ride on a deadpan counter-narrative to the current disheveled state of all things red, white, and blue, with a pair of consummate outsiders who disagree on almost everything, but are best friends nevertheless.
