CONCRETE LAW is an award winning, feature length documentary film, directed by April Jones.

 

SYNOPSIS: How renegade skateboarders turn their frustration with the lack of government support into fuel for political action. The Channel Street Skatepark flourished for over a decade until overpass construction led to an ongoing shutdown. Facing the fate of demolition, founders and advocates navigate their way through political minefields to save their community-built skatepark, in a section of one of the busiest shipping ports on the planet. 

 

This film captures the essence and grit  of urban resilience and solidarity. A story that transcends skate culture and tests community perseverance in the face of political challenges.

“It’s rare that skaters fight the law and win but CONCRETE LAW is a proof positive blueprint is how skaters can work with their municipalities harmoniously to create DIY’s around the world.” — Chris Nieratko
