THIS AIN'T CALIOFORNIA - TEASER from Marten Persiel on Vimeo.

THIS AIN’T CALIFORNIA is an anthem to the zest for life.
This is the story of three adolescents, who made an unlikely discovery on the GDR’s crumbling tarmac: the skateboard. The board from America didn’t just become the epicenter of fun during their last summers in East Germany, but also turned into a symbol for their autonomy in a decrepit state that had lost touch with its citizens. A mix of staged scenes and archive footage allows us an un- conventional look into the universe of the late GDR’s youth. The legend of East German skaters is the starting point for this unheard of story of fun, rebellion and the courage to be yourself.
