Converse explores China in a film that follows our Chinese skate team on their journey to find new places to skate.
The full-length film.
Converse embarked on a 20-day skate odyssey with four of its new China team riders: Fu Ling Chao, Xu Ying, Luo Jian Shen, and Du Ming Gen across 5 cities including Wuhan, Xining, Qinghai, Dali and Kunming. They reveal a multitude of surfaces, communities and creative cultures that are a part to their lifestyle. Their story of independence and dedication to their sport and lifestyle–despite obstacles– serves as an inspiration to be true to yourself. The film and their journey marks the rise of skate culture in China.
