Storyline

It is one of the world's oldest and most unique skate parks, but following a devastating fire, it is financially on its knees. Meet the park's middle age skaters, BMXers and street artists, who against all the odds, are fighting to keep it open alive for the next generation. Welcome to Britain's Dogtown. Shot in stunning full 4K this is the first time a feature length documentary has looked at the early British skateboarding scene and the first generation of skaters and BMX riders from the late seventies and eighties who are still going strong. Rom Boys features archive footage from the past 40 years and over thirty interviews with some of the worlds biggest names in skate and BMX. Written by Matt Harris

AN AMAZING LOOK AT A CULTURAL ICON
3 November 2020 | by andyruffellSee all my reviews

I admit I may be a little biased because I'm in it, but that aside, Matt has done an epic job of capturing the sprit of ROM Skatepark and the people that helped make it the most Famous Skatepark in the world! It's not just a well directed and edited journey thru time, its a monument to a place that has impacted millions of lives!
