This Ain't California

The talk of the 2012 Berlinale and a hit at this yearâ€TMs Rooftop Films Series NYC, West German director Marten Persielâ€TMs THIS AINâ€TMT CALIFORNIA thrills on so many levels it ultimately defies description, much like its stunning skateboarding tricks caught on archival super 8 and set to 80s German synthpop. To call it a doc about a gang of skateboarders on the wrong side of the Berlin Wall doesnâ€TMt nearly do justice to this punk nostalgia trip and fragile time capsule, to this alternative history of the German Democratic Republic, and personal tribute to a lone teenage rebel with a universal cause. - Lauren Wissot
