4wheelwarpony is a multi-screen experimental film that juxtaposes historic archive photos and modern reenactments of 19th century White Mountain Apache Scouts with art, photography and skateboarding footage captured and created by core members of the White Mountain Apache band of skateboarders in an effort to document their culture in motion.
Skateboard culture, like Native American culture is often borrowed or stolen, then regurgitated to the public for profit in a distorted form resented by skateboarders. On the surface this film may seem to depict White Mountain Apache youth borrowing “pop-culture” in place of their own, when it is actually ancient Apache culture of young men, manifesting itself within skateboard culture.
