All This Mayhem
2014, 104 mins
All This Mayhem is the mind-blowing new film from the makers of the award-winning documentaries Exit Through The Gift Shop and Senna.
In the late 1990s, the world of competitive skateboarding witnessed the meteoric rise of Tas and Ben Pappas, two close-knit Australian brothers from the wrong side of the tracks ("bogans", as Tas calls themselves) who arrived in America to pursue their passion as soon as they turned 16.
Both extraordinarily talented, the tough, charismatic older brother Tas, and the quieter, more thoughtful Ben even toppled the venerable Tony Hawk to rank numbers one and two in the world. But their dazzling achievements rapidly started to unravel through a staggering series of events, and once the brothers were separated on opposite sides of the world, each of their lives threatened to implode completely.
