‘Grinders’ Short Film Proves Skateboarders And Gay Men Have A Lot In Common

‘Grinders’ is a fake trailer that explores the world’s perception and discrimination of skateboarders, and offers a brilliantly subtle analogy to being gay.

The films synopsis reads:

For many people in the “real world”, a skateboard is nothing but a useless wooden toy, something that gets thrown away when you grow up. This film is for the misunderstood people who never threw it away.

The short film was selected as the Best Overall film for Converse and Kingshit Magazine’s “Connect the Dots” 2014 competition.
