From the producer of the award-winning Senna and Exit Through The Gift Shop, comes All This Mayhem, out on Blu-ray March 17, 2015, in the US and Canada from Video Services Corp (VSC).
All This Mayhem follows brothers Tas and Ben Pappas, two boys from Melbourne who took the skateboarding world by storm, defeated Tony Hawk and were crowned International World Champions –all within a year. Skateboarding came naturally to the Pappas brothers, but success was a different story. In this unflinching, never-before-seen account we witness the dark consequences of Tas and Ben’s rapid success, their intense fraternal bond and their journey from the pinnacle of their sport into a downward spiral of self-destruction. This documentary features fascinating interviews, first person accounts and archival footage, and is a searing account of what happens when raw talent and extreme personalities collide and tells of a tragedy too incredible to believe.
An official selection of the Sydney Film Festival, Summit South Film Festival, Adelaide Film Festival and Sheffield International Documentary Festival, where it was nominated for the Special Jury Award, All This Mayhem recently won three Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards, including Best Direction, Best Editing and Best Original Music Score in a Documentary.
