USA, 2011, 74 Minute Running Time
Special Late-Night engagement screens through March 29th at the Denver FilmCenter
Digital Presentation - Directed by Tristan Patterson and executive produced by indie-maverick Christine Vachon, DRAGONSLAYER is the Grand Jury Prize Winner for Best Documentary at SXSW 2011 and the second feature film to be released theatrically by Drag City Records following Harmony Korine’s Trash Humpers. An intimate vérité portrait of the life and times of Josh “Skreech” Sandoval, a 23-year-old skate legend from the stagnant suburbs of Fullerton, California, DRAGONSLAYER takes the viewer through a golden SoCal haze of lost youth, broken homes and abandoned swimming pools, set to a soundtrack of bands from indie-rock labels Mexican Summer and Kemado Records—including Best Coast, Bipolar Bear, Children, Dungen, Jacuzzi Boys, Little Girls and The Soft Pack, as well as Death and Thee Oh Sees—DRAGONSLAYER is a punkrock manifesto to youth, love and learning to survive after the decline of western civilization.
