Push Process

PUSH PROCESS is an experimental short film examining the search for meaning through skateboarding. Exploring themes of transcendence and loss––intimate topics not often voiced by the skate community. The film follows the Solo Tango squad, a Toronto-based skateboarder collective reflecting on the impact skateboarding has had on their lives while mourning the loss of their friend and local skateboarder, Reid Vail. We witness as these skateboarders transition into parenthood and negotiate adulthood while still chasing the feeling they can only get from skateboarding.
