Join a filmmaker Q&A with Steve Pasvolsky, Bill Bennett & Ho Thi Lu
Popcorn Taxi presents an exclusive screening of Deck Dogz, a fast-paced movie that tracks three suburban skate punks as they embark on a odyssey across the wilds of West Sydney to the beach bowl, a competition hosted by legendary international skate champ, Tony Hawk.
This new Australian film by Oscar-nominated writer/director, Steve Pasvolsky (Inja, 2002) features a pumping soundtrack from Run Lola Run composers, Johnny Klimek and Reinhold Heil. The film energetically forges vibrant animated sequences that run parallel with the main storyline. Deck Dogz also features 12 times world skateboarding champion, Tony Hawk.
The three lead roles are played by relative unknowns, Sean Kennedy, Richard Wilson and Ho Thi Lu - cast as much for their acting ability as their passion for skateboarding. The story maps both a physical and emotional journey of discovery for these three teenage mates, stylistically playing cheeky comedy off dramatic themes with some killer skateboard action along the way.
After the screening, join writer/director Steve Pasvolsky, veteran producer, Bill Bennett and actor/skater Ho Thi Lu for a live on-stage audience Q&A session for an insight into the making of Deck Dogz.
Popcorn Taxi would like to thank United International Pictures for their generous support in making this program possible. For more information on the film visit http://www.deckdogz.com
