Rom Boys : 40 Years of Rad is a feature length documentary currently in production highlighting the history of Rom Skatepark, in Hornchurch. The only full size skatepark in the world to be historically listed.
Rom is a unique example of urban industrial skate architecture from the 70’s and still considered today as one of the gnarliest skateparks in the world.
This film covers the history of the park and it’s users, from the skaters of the 70’s to the BMX’ers of the 80’s through to the old skool skaters, many now in their fifties who keep the park alive today.
The film is aiming for a 2018 release date to tie in with Rom’s 40th anniversary.
With a project such as this the success will come from the involvement of the skate and BMX community from past and present. As such we need as much photography / videography and personal stories through the decades as possible. If you could please contact Matt – firstname.lastname@example.org telling us what you have and how we can get copies from you then this will be greatly appreciated and will help us tell the best story possible.
