The young no-budget filmmaker Florian Schneider follows the skateboarding legend Bobby Puleo around New York City. Sometimes he wishes he weren’t a skateboarder, Puleo says. Or he should get paid for it. “Just to do me.” Instead he works at a diner. Because his art – collages of notes and photographs he finds in the streets and collects in his chaotic apartment – doesn’t provide a living either. Schneider’s brief study is a very intimate portrait of the skateboarding fanatic.
