Stoked: The Rise and Fall of Gator
Helen Stickler's brilliantly constructed documentary charts the rise of skateboarding culture in the 1980s, using the life of the era's most celebrated skater, Mark "Gator" Rogowski, as a focal point. A mix of jaw-dropping skateboarding footage, '80s nostalgia, music and interviews re-creates the era with great energy and feeling, while presenting an intimate character study of fame gone sour. Stoked premiered at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival.
