Pray For Me: The Jason Jessee Film

In today's hyper-extreme, action-packed, sports drink-swilling, hummer-driving, blinged out world of professional skateboarding, with top "athletes" easily making six figure incomes, it's easy for one to forget about the true nature of where skateboarding comes from. Movies like " Dogtown and Z-Boys" helped sum up skateboarding's “roots” by focusing on pioneers such as Tony Alva and Stacy Peralta, but not many stories have been told about the pros of the late '80s and early '90s when the world of skateboarding was truly in bloom.


“Pray For Me" is just that, a striking honest portrayal of one of skateboarding's true heroes Jason Jessee, whose unorthodox and borderline paranoiac lifestyle captures the true essence of what it was like to be part of the scene in a time when skateboarding was still full of raw innocence and decisions weren't based on the size of the paycheck. Watch a trailer, read more reviews or get a copy of the film on the official site.
