A mockumentary from 1966 on the evils of skateboarding


 
A mockumentary in the style of an alarmist propaganda film, The Devil’s Toy, directed by esteemed Canadian director Claude Jutra in 1966, uses the beginnings of the skateboard explosion to satirize and critique society’s fear of youth culture. Dedicated to “all victims of intolerance.”

“Beware, the youth of the world is on the move and their aim is to take over!”

In addition to making salient points about the generation gap, the film is beautifully photographed.
