Rollin' Through the Decades celebrates skateboarding's journey from London's South Bank underneath the Queen Elizabeth Hall, spiritual home of skateboarding since the early seventies. After the first boom of the 70's, skateboarding had been ignored by society, leaving it to small groups of passionate diehards to keep skating alive. A small revival occurred in 1985 due to its association with films such as "Back To The Future" and other influences from America. This wave began to gain international exposure and spawned the opening of a few new skate parks. Yet once more during the 90's, due to lack of organization and falling revenues, skate parks closed, magazines folded and people lost interest. Attitudes within skater culture had become less communal. Skateboarding went back underground. Today skateboarding has come back with a vengeance, .across the Atlantic, commercial momentum was steadily building through the late 90's, exemplified by televised events such as 'The X-Games' and the ubiquitous 'Tony Hawk Pro Skater' Playstation video game., skateboarding has come full circle and is returning to its roots, so that negative trendy attitudes give way to an 'anything is cool' atmosphere, like in its earliest days. Skateboarding's legacy is now also consumed every day by the corporate non-skateboarding world, in music, TV, fashion, design and advertising, yet skaters themselves feel left out, ironically victims of their own success. Rollin' Through the Decades encapsulates the positive atmosphere of skateboarding and shows a true picture of its influence on our time. Showcasing historic, rare and unseen skateboarding footage. Featuring some of the finest tunes from the 80s and 90s and music especially composed for the film. ROLLIN interviews over 100 inspirational and legendary skateboarders, photographers and filmmakers.
