The film documents the transgressions of a lost skate punk falling in love in the stagnant suburbs of California in the aftermath of Americaʼs economic collapse. Taking the viewer through broken homes, abandoned swimming pools and stray glimpses of unusual beauty, the film captures the life and times of Josh “Skreech” Sandoval, a local skate legend and new father, as his endless summer finally collides with the future. Set to the alternately roaring and dreamy soundtrack of West Coast indie rock. Rightfully earning comparisons to Harmony Korine’s fictional work, Dragonslayer serves as an adroit anthropological investigation that remains aesthetically and spiritually faithful to the subculture it’s profiling. The film is the Grand Jury Prize winner for Best Documentary Feature at SXSW 2011.
