MADE IN VENICE the movie is the inside story of the skateboarders of Venice, California, and the struggle to make the dream of a skatepark come true.

Never-before-seen Super-8 and early video footage, along with rare black and white stills, take you back to innovative demos on the Boardwalk and skating the walls of the Pavilion, as the Venice skaters pushed the boundaries of street skating and put it on the global map. Coming to theaters August 25th from Abramorama.
