Brookyln Rocksteady was the one act of Skate & Surf I wanted to see that I did not get to see. A feature length documentary on ska and rocksteady in Brooklyn? I was stoked. But alas, I did not get to see it, and nor did anyone else at Skate & Surf due to as-of-yet unknown reasons. We’ll have an interview with its creator, Samuel Gursky, coming soon; perhaps we’ll find out what happened there.
That said, Samuel Gursky has released a scene from the film in place of a movie trailer. The film is now set to premier Thursday, July 18 and Friday, July 19 in Brooklyn with a public release on Tuesday, July 23; more information can be found at their official website, www.brooklynrocksteady.com. You can watch the six minute scene here after the jump.
