The latest skate documentary by Carhartt WIP

 

Saint Denis er den seneste skate dokumentar fra Carhartt WIP, der handler om team rider Denis Lynn.

Filmen er om Carhartt WIP teamrider Denis Lynn, der er vokset op i et sekterisk opdelt Nord Irland, der ikke gav megen rum for skateboarding, men netop derfor blev det hans mål og middel til at rykke videre ud i Europa. Han blev tidligt kendt for sit talent men også for at være fuldbyrdet joker.

Filmen er skudt og instrueret af Phil Evans, der har arbejdet sammen med Carhartt WIP på tidligere film som Format Perspective.​

Saint Denis Copenhagen Premiere

 

Saint Denis is the latest skate documentary by Carhartt WIP, featuring team rider Denis Lynn.
Clocking in at 43 minutes, it explores the world of Denis, his humble origins and his jaunts around Europe, seeing him skate spots in Paris, Copenhagen and Malmo. The film is shot and directed by Phil Evans, a regular Carhartt WIP collaborator, who has worked with the brand on previous projects such as Format Perspective and The Panoramic Series.

 

Saint Denis

 

Born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, Denis first picked up a board at the age of five. By his teenage years, he had garnered a reputation as a talented skater and consummate piss-taker. However, as Evans captures throughout this film, his city still bares the scars of years of sectarian division, which has long stunted the growth of Belfast’s skate scene.

For Denis, skateboarding not only became his purpose, but also a tool for transcending these surroundings, allowing him to travel the world and throw himself into all manner of unusual situations.

Saint Denis is a testament to Denis’s own resolve and evolution as a skater. It includes archive material, interviews with Denis as well as friends and family, and a host of original, unseen skate footage.
