Close Up: Skate Dreams

Trailer CLOSE UP Tickets - Starr Cinema


Wednesday, June 14 5:00p – director Jessica Edwards in person

“You skate like a girl” was once an insult. The new film by Jessica Edwards (a Peabody Award winner for her film MAVIS!) shows how women’s skateboarding is now an international force, thanks to the trailblazing pioneers of the 1980s and a new generation of Olympic contenders. The who’s who of skaters are notably collegial, a refreshing departure from the brutally competitive world of high-stakes sports. (U.S., 2022, 90m)

“A bright, sweet, and badass film – a kaleidoscope picture of incredible and talented skateboarders who are devoted to their totally wicked passion.” –Austin Chronicle
