FotoFocus at Rhinegeist: United Skates

United Skates, directed by Dyana Winkler and Tina Brown, is an engaging documentary that peers into the underground subculture of African-American roller skate communities. The film is a fascinating look at the social, historical, and creative importance of a physical art form that is in danger of disappearing. The film shares the story of such famous rinks as World on Wheels located in Los Angeles, that has hosted hundreds of skate nights over the years.
