Static VI - NZ Premiere
"Since 1999 Josh Stewart has been skateboarding's preeminent underground director thanks to his raw, independently funded Static video series. He is often referred to as the John Cassavetes of skateboarding."
- Vice Magazine
Josh Stewart loves skateboarding. He's been documenting raw, underground street skating for 25 years.
Josh self-funded the entire Static series. He's travelled the globe to lift the curtain on street skaters who don't get the shine they deserve.
They're skating for themselves and the culture. Not the corporation.
The previous five Static videos have included iconic parts from legends Bobby Puleo, Quim Cardona, Danny Renaud, Jahmal Williams and Jake Johnson.
The last instalments - Static IV & V - were released almost 10 years ago.
Everyone in the skate community believed there'd be no more after that.
It was the end...
Until two months ago when Josh announced the release of Static VI.
The final, final.
When I saw the trailer I immediately contacted Josh to ask if we could screen a premiere here in Aotearoa.
Like the Man from Del Monte, he said 'YES!".
Don't miss this opportunity to see Static VI, live and direct on the BIG SCREEN!
Yes, it's on a Saturday morning. But that's how we can make the tickets FREE.
There's a limited number available. Don't miss out.
This is a one-off opportunity. You'll probably never get the chance to see a skate film in a cinema again.
Get your crew together, party less hard on Friday night and pull your sorry asses out of bed Saturday morning.
I'll see you there!
IMPORTANT - Please bring proof of your ticket on the morning of the showing. Digital is cool, but we need this to ensure seating availability.
Doors at 9:00 am. Showing at 9:15 am.
Big shout to The Empire Cinema for supporting the local skateboard community!
