Ye Olde Destruction (YOD), 2019
57 min. 16mm film

For the past seven years, artist and filmmaker Thomas Campbell (b. 1969, USA) has been working on his self-funded skateboarding film Ye Olde Destruction, a black-and-white 16mm exploit, featuring “a solid grip of shredders building and skating DIY spots, some street action, pools and other stuff,” as Campbell notes. The impetus of the film – the two groups of skaters driving through California in cool old cars – almost classifies it as a classic car movie, but presented in a brutal and somehow dreamscape editing style, featuring frenetic scribblings of the renowned zine-artist Sergej Vutuc and an original score composed by the LA-based duo No Age, it turns out as a subtle time warp, an inter-web of a community, emotions and tensions, an ode to a lifelong affair with skateboarding.
