Shot in stunning 4K, the film centres around East London's legendary Rom skatepark and is the first feature-length documentary to look at the early British skateboarding and BMX scene from the late '70s & '80s.

Rom Boys features archive footage from the past 40 years and over 30 interviews with some of the worlds biggest names in skateboarding and BMX. Including Gumball 3000 creator Maximillion Cooper & '80s skateboarding legend Lance Mountain. The film recently received critical acclaim during its UK digital release last year and is currently still certified 100% Fresh by Rotten Tomatoes.

Rom skatepark is one of the world’s oldest and most unique skateparks, but following a devastating fire, it’s financially on its knees. Meet the park’s middle age skaters, BMXers and street artists, who against all the odds, are fighting to keep the park alive for the next generation. Welcome to Britain’s Dogtown.
