Villa Villa Cola “Getting Nowhere Faster” (2004)
In the past ten years the subculture of skateboarding has become a mainstream attraction receiving unprecedented attention. Yet somehow, niches of highly talented skaters intrinsically connected to the richness of the artform and its potential for creative expression have remained largely unknown. Getting Nowhere Faster, the new skateboard video project by the notorious Villa Villa Cola squadron, brings to light the elusive and mysterious underworld of female skateboarders and their craft.
This cinematic pearl features peril & sass by the following experts: Vanessa Torres, Amy Caron, Elizabeth Nitu, Nugget, Faye Jaime, Alex White, Patiane Freitas, Stefanie Thomas, Lauren Mollica, Van Nguyen, Lauren Perkins, Lyn-z Adams Hawkins, Cara Beth Burnside, amongst many other shred getters.
This project features skateboarding never seen at a level such as this before-it’s a brand new recipe- with a dash of the following ingredients: a villianous cupcake, a motorcycle gang, an invisible cosmetic predator, a cowboy, and a fantasy skatepark called Tiffanyland.
Made entirely by female skateboarders, Getting Nowhere Faster is an authentic portrayal of these skaters and their unbridled talent and creativity. This project undoubtedly has the potential to be a landmark in skateboarding history.
