United Skates



Production support


When America's last standing roller rinks are threatened with closure, a community of thousands battle in a racially charged environment to save an underground subculture-- one that has remained undiscovered by the mainstream for generations, yet has given rise to some of the world's greatest musical talent.

In the style of ‘Whose Streets?’, and ‘20 Feet From Stardom’, UNITED SKATES grows out of a chorus of voices across the entire United States. At a time when our country feels painfully divided, and fly-over states often feel overlooked, the story of a community crisscrossing our nation to celebrate what unites them, is more important now than ever.
