Skateboarding Legend in the Making Kilian Martin Speaks About His Craft
Striving to do the impossible on a skateboard, Kilian Martin is truly forging a career path in skating unlike any others. Presented by THE AVANT/GARDE DIARIES and director Brett Novak, the dazzling footage plays out as one part action sports video and equal parts ballet – watching as Martin methodically dazzles with the flare of Baryshnikov and a bullfighter. The result is an homage to the form itself – from skating’s early acrobatic days in the ’60s to the street innovations of the ’90s. As captured by Novak’s elegant cinematography, Kilian takes freestyle skateboarding into the 21st century with his artful and inspiring take on handstands, helipops and heel flips.
