OFF THE WALL
Check out rare skater flicks
You’ve seen Dogtown and Z-Boys, Kids, and Paranoid Park, all movies in BAM’s Skateboarding Is Not a Crime series. But chances are good you might not have tonight’s three short films checked off your list: The Devil’s Toy, a 1966 satirical documentary by Claude Jutra about the skateboarding craze sweeping Montreal; Fruit of the Vine, Coan Nichols and Rick Charnoski’s 1999 movie about skating empty swimming pools, shot on Super 8, and, the first skateboarding movie ever, Noel Black’s 1965 Cannes prize-winning short Skaterdater, about a young skate rat in love.
