Produced by VICE Films, ALL THIS MAYHEM is a searing account of what happens when raw talent and extreme personalities collide, taking two brothers from the top of the world to unimaginable depths in just a few short years.
This unflinching, never-before-seen tale uncovers a world of drugs and unfettered hedonism during the glory days of professional vert skateboarding. Legendary skaters and charismatic brothers Tas and Ben Pappas share an intense bond that not only propels them to the pinnacle of their sport, but also proves their undoing in this tragic story of Shakespearian proportions, Utilising hours of footage taken throughout the brothers’ lives through the present day, paired with interviews with other legendary skateboarding stars, the film chronicles the brothers meteoric rise to number one and two in the world and the heartbreaking personal and professional story that ensued. Touching upon their revolutionary styles, feuds with Tony Hawk, the darker side of fame, and immeasurable passion for their sport and each other, ALL THIS MAYHEM is an epic story of having and losing it all.
The screening will be followed by an exclusive Q&A with Producer George Pank (AMY, Exit Through The Gift Shop).
