Made In Venice is a documentary film that captures the first hand stories and recollections of 40+ years of skateboarding in Venice. From the Z-Boys, to legendary street skaters, to building the now-iconic Venice Skatepark, Made In Venice takes you on a ride through skateboarding history.
Featuring skateboarding legends Jay Adams, Jesse Martinez, Christian Hosoi, Dave Duncan, Ray Flores and Jim Muir along with the locals, legends and heroes who lived to tell their Dogtown story. From raising hell on the beach as teens to turning pro and putting street skating on the global map, defying gravity on a skateboard was easy compared to their ultimate dream- a skatepark on Venice Beach for the community, and skaters of tomorrow.
