"Beautiful visuals...immaculately captured. Dragonslayer is practically flawless." -Indiewire

"This fabulous skating documentary has echoes of Gus Van Sant with its hazy, daydreamy look at the lives of skateboarding youths." -Trepass

"Gorgeous. See this one on the big screen if you get a chance." -Cinematical

An intimate vérité portrait of the life and times of Josh "Skreech" Sandoval, a 23-year-old skate legend from the stagnant suburbs of Fullerton, California, DRAGONSLAYER takes the viewer through a golden SoCal haze of lost youth, broken homes and abandoned swimming pools, set to a soundtrack of bands from indie-rock labels Mexican Summer and Kemado Records-including Best Coast, Bipolar Bear, Children, Dungen, Jacuzzi Boys, Little Girls and The Soft Pack—as well as Death and Thee Oh Sees. Grand Jury Prize Winner for Best Documentary at SXSW.
