8 Wheels & Some Soul Brotha Music
U.S.A. / 2005 / 74 mins.
Synopsis: 8 Wheels Documentary Rolls Across America as it Infuses New Life Into the Roller Skating Culture. Capturing the feel of each revolution of skater’s eight wheels and every funky movement gliding around the rink, Los Angeles based director, Tyrone D. Dixon, stirs the soul in his debut feature documentary that inspired the making of Fox Searchlight’s skating retro 70’s feature ROLL BOUNCE starring Bow-Wow and Nick Cannon. This emotional blend of funk, old school and rhythm and blues compliment America’s urban voices of roller skating as it examines the past, present and future of a cultural phenomenon, urban roller style skating.
