Wassup Rockers (2005) - Synopsis

Larry Clark’s Wassup Rockers is about a group of Latino teenagers in South Central Los Angeles who, instead of conforming to the hip hop culture of their gang infested neighborhood, wear tight pants, listen to punk rock, and ride their tricked out skateboards. Avoiding the violence of their dangerous home turf is an everyday challenge. The Rockers decide to travel by bus to skate the world famous Nine Stairs at Beverly Hills High School. There they meet some local girls, attracted to the punks from the ghetto, but the day quickly goes bad. They’re hassled by rich boys from the neighbourhood and rousted by the Beverly Hills Police. Trying to escape arrest by the cops and fights with the locals kids, the Rockers run from house to house and yard to yard in this wealthy and foreign world, looking for a way to get home. An action movie with wild chases through LA and a powerful soundtrack!
