Dogtown and Z-Boys is a 2001 documentary film directed by Stacy Peralta. Using a mix of film the Zephyr skateboard team shot in the 1970s by Craig Stecyk and more recent interviews, the documentary tells the story of a group of teenage surfer/skateboarders and their influence on the history of Skateboarding (and to a lesser extent surfing) culture. The film is narrated by Sean Penn.
Much of the archival footage used in the film came from teenagers who wanted to be a part of the Z-Boys group but were not good enough skateboarders so they got to be a part of the Z-Boys group by filming and photographing them.
Peralta was not the only Z boy to work on the film; former Zephyr team members, photojournalists Craig Stecyk and Glen E. Friedman, were the film’s co-writer and co-producer, respectively.
According to Stacy Peralta in a 2004 interview, "Dogtown has sold over a million DVDs and more than 700,000 VHS."
In 2001, Stacy Peralta won the Sundance Film Festival Award for Directing Award Documentary. (http://history.sundance.org/films/2222)
