About the Movie
A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man dies but once. B.C. renegades race down mountain highways on customized longboards, while a middle-aged skateboarder fights to keep his Ottawa skate park and creaky knees operational. Whether it's bombing down hills at over 100km per hour, just inches from the ground, or spending 25 years and their life savings to keep competing in the sport they love, these guys are truly devoted — and a little road rash or even open-heart surgery are simply tests for the faithful. What starts out as a gonzo skate movie turns into a surprisingly heartfelt documentary that bears witness to the power of community, dedication and the DIY spirit. With intimate and candid moments that may lead you to think this is a mocumentary, Highway Gospel is a humorous and at times heartbreaking multi-character documentary that strikes an intricate balance between rowdy and insightful while serving as a reminder that heartfelt stories can also be hilarious.
Most entertaining Doc I've seen in a while!
Very entertaining doc. Not just for skateboarders, but for anyone who loves great characters and strong stories. If you liked Spinal Tap, Fubar, Trailer Park Boys or Anvil: The Story of Anvil, you'll like this doc!
A fascinating look at lives less ordinary. It shows adventures and passion that they experience, of lives more intense than the majority of the sensible people in society. But it never shies away from showing the costs of that obsession.
