The best kinds of films make you want to cry, laugh, or quit your job.
Around The Block, directed by French filmmakers Tristan Helias and Killian Lassablière, is the latter. It makes you yearn for hazy summer afternoons, with nowhere to be and nothing to do aside from hitting spots and drinking beers with friends. Of endless nights pushing around Paris, with potential around every corner and deadlines out of sight.
Following a selection of emerging skateboarders from the local Parisian scene, Around The Block is a 2-minute short film accompanied individual snapshots of skaters Paul, Victor, Ludovic, Ymard, Mickael and Antoine. Accompanied by an urgent, pulsing score by Maxime Hervé, Around The Block is a dynamic insight into a local community you should hit play on today.
