House of Vans London is delighted to host the European premiere of Arms Wide Open, the first all-female skate film from Vans featuring Helena Long, Amy Ram, Shani Bru, Lucy Adams, Una Farrar, Breana Geering and Fabiana Delfino. The film documents their trip around Indonesia as they skate the country’s most exotic spots.
Bali is renowned for being a surfer’s Heaven, however more recently a burgeoning skate scene has developed, along with a plethora of bowls and natural spots, making it a must visit destination for skaters globally.
The film was filmed and edited by Sirus Grahan. Sirus’ unique style perfectly captures the Vans crew’s adventure, hitting Bali and Jakarta’s skateboarding spots, as well as making the most of Bali’s lifestyle.
In addition, an accompanying photo exhibition from the film will fill the House of Vans gallery space in Tunnel 1 featuring photography by Sara Parson Texas and Norma Ibarra who followed the girls on their journey through Indonesia.
The evening festivities continue with a girls only Skate Session, before the night closes out to DJs and karaoke.
This extremely special event at House of Vans will be free to the public, with no booking required.
