A follow-up to his award-wining doc Dogtown and Z-Boys, Stacy Peralta brings us back on board with his famous ‘80s skateboard team, the Bones Brigade, a staggeringly innovative band of misfit kids who forever changed the sport. Tony Hawk, Rodney Mullen, Steve Caballero, Lance Mountain, Tommy Guerrero and Mike McGill formed a motley crew of young teenage outcasts committed and obsessed with their art form. The Bones Brigade, helmed by an 1970s ex-skateboard champion, became the most popular team in history. Through the invention of tricks that remain iconic today, they revolutionized skateboarding, rescuing it from its status as a pastime thought to be over and turning it into the billion-dollar industry it is today. Bones Brigade is the next chapter in a story of seven young kids whose spirit and dedication helped define a part of popular culture. Charlotte Cook
