Shanghai 5 - Documentary by Charles Lanceplaine

Shanghai 5 is a documentary by Charles Lanceplaine about the scene, people, skate culture, and chinese perception of skaters in Shanghai. It has a good amount of interviews that showed some insight into the difference in perception here vs. there - even how the one child policy influences parents view of skating. Education and professional success are higher priorities, and most parents disapprove and see skating as unproductive, even if it is just a hobby. On the bright side, the spots there look amazing.
