This short 1966 documentary dedicated "to all victims of intolerance” depicts the dawn of skateboarding in Montreal. A new activity frowned upon by police and adults, skateboarding gave youngsters a thrilling sensation of speed and freedom. This film - the first Canadian documentary ever made about the sport - captures the exuberance of boys and girls having the time of their lives in free-wheeling downhill locomotion.

    @ed-hawco --> Good eye! To answer your question, the original version is from 1966 and in French. However, the English version was released in 1969, so the copyright is from then.

    The synopsis says this is a 1966 film, but the date at the end says MCMLXIX, which is 1969. I'm inclined to believe the film's date. Please check and if I'm right, update the synopsis! Thanks!

    @Toby - The song is part of the original score, which was composed by Pierre F. Brault. The singer is Genevieve Bujold. Hope that helps.
