Jack Be Nimble, winner of the ‘Best Documentary’ award at the 2008 Illinois International Film Festival, is in stock now.
Jack Be Nimble – “…a transforming vision. You really must see it.”
Witness a vision of modern sport filtered through the dirty windows of a twenty-year-old RV. Rollerblading exists on the fringe of action sports solely due to the passion and ambition of its riders: those who grew up on skates and are now organizing competitions, publishing magazines and making movies in a grassroots effort to redevelop the sport organically. The documentary ‘jack Be Nimble’ follows a group of these offbeat yet dedicated athletes through competitions across the United States, listening in as they explain why rollerblading has held their interest all these years. The film is a tribute to the finesse and uninhibited athleticism of the sport, and a gritty portrait of the profound sense of adventure discovered only at the cusp of maturity. “Poignant and exuberant…a transforming vision. You really must see it.” Winner Best Documentary Feature at the Illinois International Film Festival 2008. In stock and available now!
Jack Be Nimble comes highly recommended by yours truly. I was fortunate enough to see this film premiere in a theatre in Detroit after the Bittercold Showdown, and it was an experience I will never forget. Simply put, Jack Be Nimble reminds us why we all rollerblade. And it does so in a way that makes you feel like you are on a road trip with your friends, complete with unforseen obstacles, unexpected tragedy, amazing skating, countless new adventures, shit talking, friendship and personal triumph.
