Movie Details

This Ain't California


A mind blowing semi-fictional docu-drama that seamlessly mixes archive footage and recreated scenes telling the story of a group of teens and their love for skate boarding in the last oppressive years of East Berlin. A visual stunning, highly entertaining film that cleverly mixes equal parts of The Imposter, Lives of Others, Lords of Dogtown and Goodbye Lenin. A must-see for fans of skate boarding, counter culture, hip-hop and nostalgia for the GDR (Ostalgie), accompanied by an incredible 80's soundtrack.
