Montreal, 1966. A shoulder-mounted camera. A skateboard. Claude Jutra makes one of the first skateboarding films, The Devils Toy. One of the originators of cinéma direct, Jutra didnt just create a film about the victims of intolerance as the opening credits state, his film unintentionally defined the early history of skate cinema.
The Devils Toy Redux rails against the standard model of how stories are told and consumed. The original film is reimagined by fourteen directors from around the world. Easily navigate from one film to the next and witness the evolution of skateboarding culture as told through these filmmakers.
