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.
Warwick Cairns, accomplished author and one of the very first people to skate Rom was interviewed for the film yesterday and has some great anecdotes for us to include in our next trailer edit. Check out his profile at www.warwickcairns.com
