Daniel Soares has always been “curious about people who do things out of the ordinary.” In San Francisco, where he lived for a few years, the young Portuguese born in Germany saw a group of people skating in a park. “I was immediately intrigued,” he says.
“People with colorful costumes, of all ages, races and walks of life, all united by a passion: roller skating.”
Daniel decided to proceed with his personal project to conduct a mini-documentary about that skaters community. He met them one day and the next week-end was already filming. “I gathered a small group of people who also believed in the project and got into to work. We shot in two days”, he says. The message that Daniel wants to spread out is not limited to skates. “When we are children we do everything that gives us pleasure, regardless of what others might think.”
“Over time, we began to look more to others and judging this and that” he believes. For skaters whose story we get to know the mini-documentary, is this “hobby”, very popular in the United States in the 1970s and 1980s.
