Sk8r grrls

Their aren't a lot of female skaters, so in the late 1990s sisters Tiffany and Nicole Morgan started Villa Villa Cola (I have no idea what the name means, but it's not a drink so far as I know) to bring together skater girls wherever they could find them.

Many zines, parties, videos, bumps, scrapes, and bruises later, they have produced -- along with Lisa Whitaker and Lori Damiano -- the indie film Getting Nowhere Faster, which is all about girl skaters.



I saw a flier about it in my neighborhood in November or December, and jotted down the URL villavillacola.com to check it out, but didn't get around to it until just recently. So I was disappointed to learn that I missed the local premier screening at the Roxie.

But the trailer looks very cool. Apparently the film opens for wider release on January 25, so hopefully it'll be back in my neighborhood eventually.
