That’s young Leroy. I met him this past weekend when I flew out to Lakota Country in South Dakota, also known as Sioux Nation and site of the Wounded Knee Massacre.  Went out there to direct + produce a short doc for Red Bull, on what is a vast land of virtually zero opportunity and high suicide rates. Pine Ridge is a reservation where 50% of the population is under the age of 18, a mind blowing statistic. But, from this bleak land sprang a skate park which has given rise to a budding skate movement, one that’s literally saving these kids’ lives. And I don’t say this lightly. Much love to NYC skater Jim “Murph” Murphy and Walt Pourier for envisioning this, and pouring their hearts into such an important project. Video coming soon.
