Grey Area

Sam Perkin is one of the most exciting young composers at work in Ireland today. He also happens to be a skateboarder, and this unique project fuses these two passions into a mesmerising new film. Shot and edited by skate photographer and videographers Niall O’Byrne and Sam Curtin, Grey Area follows a skateboarder’s nocturnal journey through an urban landscape while Festival stalwarts Crash Ensemble perform Perkins’ original score. The result is a hypnotic blend of music and movement that captures the rhythms and colours of skateboarding and its unique perspective on the city.
