BendFilm: The Signal Hill Speed Run 

The Signal Hill Speed Run is a documentary built mostly on historical footage and interviews of participants in the the worlds first downhill skateboard race which took place on Signal Hill in Long Beach, CA.

Q&A with directors Mike Horelick and Jon Carnoy
Why was it important to make a film about Hill Street?
The Signal Hill Speed Run, that took place on Hill Street in the City of Signal Hill, was the world's first downhill skateboard race and ran annually from 1975 to 1978. When Jon Carnoy (the co-director) and myself learned about the race, that was filled with innovation, daring, and flat-out risk-taking, we knew it was a story that had to be told. It has all the elements of a Hollywood film, with enough humor, bravado, and excitement to please any audience, whether they know anything about skateboarding or not.
