WATCH: Skater’s Paradise: On/Off

Filmmaker Youri Fernandez turns his lens on the art of skateboarding in this monochromatic portrait of four boarders—including Fernandez himself—as they make Berlin their playground, soundtracked by a metronomic composition from electronic musician Petit Fantôme.
The film is part of the HOW MANY BPM? project in which skateboarders become human metronomes as they ride back and forth on a ramp. The project was founded in 2014 at the Parisian gallery l’Hermitage by both Fernandez—co-founder of Berlin-based skateboard brand and art collective FLVR—and visual artist Iouri Camicas, who invite various musicians to create a sound universe to accompany each of the performances.
