Remembering as an Act of Resistance: Apache Skateboards and the Mystery of Now

This connection and examination of how a people and a community assert, maintain and continue to create themselves in the presence of the past and the uncertainty of the present, is also the primary theme of the recent documentary on Apache Skateboards, The Mystery Of Now. It’s a visually stunning and poetic piece in which Miles, riders for Apache skateboards and locals from the San Carlos reservation reflect on the impacts of a local skateboard brand, music, art and the past in the community.
