The Devil’s Toy Redux: “Skateboarding Sucks” by French Fred

If you aren’t already familiar with The Devil’s Toy Redux project, it consists of a number of filmmakers presenting their own rendition of the 1966 pioneering Cancadian skate film with their own choice of location. Celebrated videographer  Fred Mortagne (aka French Fred, responsible for such legendary videos as èS’s “Meikmati” and Flip’s “Sorry“) chose his hometown of Lyon, creating a very humorous (and true!) vision of skateboarding called “Skateboarding Sucks.” In typical French fashion, it initially focuses on negatives, before coming to the conclusion that these supposed negatives may in fact be the best parts about skateboarding. Bravo.
