Shanghai 5 (Skateboarding Documentary) | Video

Film maker Charles Lanceplaine put together this excellent documentary that explores the slowly uprising skating scene and culture in Shanghai, China. Relatively lengthy but completely worth the watch, especially if you've visited Shanghai (or just China) before. The first half is more documentary geared, while the second half is mostly skating footage throughout the city...

Really well done and great to see the opinions of the locals as well as ex-pat skaters. Skate culture is so ready to blow up in China, and I think they need that rebel culture so bad! Hopefully the government doesn't crack down too hard as it grows and takes over the streets and parks.
