"Made In Venice is not just a skate movie. It’s a tale of audacity, guts and hope filled with counterculture characters that overcame all obstacles to claim victory for the masses."
"The documentary, directed by Jonathan Penson (yet to be released) explores Venice’s skate history and the movement to get the park accepted by the city, approved, funded and finally built.
Venice was, of course, home to the original Jeff Ho Surfboards and Zephyr Productions skate shop of Z-Boys fame.
It later became a place where street skateboarding evolved."
"Made In Venice takes you through the history of the 70s, 80s, and 90s, to the current skatepark on the sand."
"Made In Venice is the inside story of the skateboarders of Venice, California, and the struggle to make the dream of a skatepark come true."
"The 20-plus year journey for this skatepark to come to fruition has been beautifully documented in Jonathan Penson’s exhilarating new film, Made In Venice."
"If the 2001 documentary “Dog Town and Z-Boys” engagingly gave Southern California’s skateboard culture its influential due, then “Made in Venice” comes across as its scrappy, but no less lovable, kid brother."
"Peep the vid of the Venice scene and the influence they had on the skateboard world."
