Waiting for Lightning is another skateboarding documentary, but not just another skateboarding documentary.

The film tells the story of Danny Way, whose passion for skateboarding lifted him up to fame from being a kid from a broken home in Vista, Calif.

The visionary skateboarder garnered fans with his love of big air in half-pipes and on enormous ramps. Then he decided to try the near-impossible: jumping the Great Wall of China on a skateboard.

Waiting for Lightning is a film about how much abuse a body can take, digging deep to survive life’s challenges and flying high for dreams.

As well as Way, the movie features Travis Pastrana, Laird Hamilton, Tony Hawk, Rodney Mullen, Mat Hofman and Ken Block.

The first feature film directed by Jacob Rosenberg, PG-13-rated Waiting for Lightning was screened in a handful of theaters, »
