In 1966 in Montreal, a young director named Claude Jutra made one of the world’s first skateboarding films, The Devil’s Toy, with just a shoulder-mounted camera and a bunch of kids on boards. The National Film Board of Canada has used Jutra’s groundbreaking film as the inspiration for a new global online experience, The Devil’s Toy Redux, launching April 30. In The Devil’s Toy Redux, the original film takes its place alongside 11 new short films by directors from around the world, all inspired by the Jutra classic. The site will allow users to navigate from one film to the next and witness the evolution of skate culture across the globe through a multiplicity of lenses, as skateboarders, filmmakers, web developers and designers all share their unique points of view. For more information be sure to visit the film’s official website.
