Mid90s, the new film written and directed by Jonah Hill, follows the story of a young boy who finds friendship and camaraderie amongst a group of older skateboarders at the local skate shop in LA.

On the day of the New York premiere for Jonah’s directorial debut, Montreal’s LOVE Skate Mag asked me to sit down with the engaging cast of the film to take some photographs and speak with them about their roots in skateboarding, friendship, the LA skate scene, and how it all came together to make one of the most genuine movies about coming of age amidst skateboarding culture.

“Harmony Korine [director: Kids, Spring Breakers] called directing being a long-term obsessive, and I can be a long-term obsessive if I fall in love with the right thing. So this was the thing [skateboarding] I fell in love with, and I wanted to make this film. If you look at anyone who’s a hero of mine, like Mike Nichols or Barry Levinson, their first films were films from a very personal, emotional place, so that’s why I made Mid90s.”
