15 Years Of Gonz & adidas Global Celebration, Berlin, Germany Exhibition & Retrospective Movie Premiere

15 Years Of Gonz & adidas Global Celebration, Berlin, Germany  Exhibition & Retrospective Movie Premiere
Salad Days

Berlin hosted the The Gonz 15 Years of adidas Exhibition and Film Premiere to honor the most influential skateboarder of all time, Mark Gonzales as he celebrates 15 years with adidas.

To mark this special anniversary, adidas skateboarding brought together six prominent photographers and three iconic filmers who have been fortunate to have watched Mark and witnessed his skateboarding antics over that past 15 years. Gabe Morford, Joe Brook, Skin Phillips, Brian Gaberman, Benjamin Deberdt and Sem Rubio tell Mark’s story through their lenses along with Eric Noren, Dan Wolfe, and Torsten Frank, who share their Gonz moments in the Retrospective film. The Gebr.Quakatz galley in Kreutzberg was taken over by specially invited guests who came to pay homage to the living legend. At 8pm the movie premiere is said to have brought tears to grown men’s eyes, but emotions were quickly back to normal as everyone relaxed into the evenings antics, tested out the Gonz taco truck and in general pretty much had an awesome time.

“When all the elements align, some nights are not just another night. Berlin was one of those.” Benjamin Deberdt

“It was really fun! There was a lot of footage in the movie that I had never seen before and even tricks that I didn’t realize that had done.” Mark Gonzales
