Lost in Havana Trailer // Juergen Gritzner’s Transportation Project

This film chronicles the outlandish results of a band of skaters from Canada and Austria smuggle a pile of Kebbek Skateboards into Cuba to give away to underprivileged kids. It’s clear from the get-go that good intentions and communist bureaucracy clash like velvet dingle-balls around the windscreen of a 1982 Lada 1600 sedan. Kebbek Skateboards, Juergen Gritzner, a pro skater from Austria walks us through a comical fish out of water story that is vivid in colour and rich in cultural awkwardness. Award winning film maker Soren Johnstone (Play with Fire, Hicks on Sticks) filmed and edited together a very enjoyable story despite his own run in with hallucinogenic jelly fish. The film held its world premiere in Slovenia earlier this month and so far has received universally positive accolades.
