A documentary about Tony Hawk's Pro Skater game series premieres next week

"Pretending I'm a Superman," a documentary about Tony Hawk's Pro Skater game series, will premiere at the Mammoth Film Festival in California next week.

As reported by Mic, Pretending I'm a Superman follows the broader skateboarding industry and the perilous place it was in during the early 1990s. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater games ultimately played a significant role in introducing skate boarding to the mainstream as both a sport and lifestyle.


Developed by former Pro Skater franchise producer Ralph D'Amato and Swedish filmmaker Ludvig Gur, the documentary was first announced in August following an unsuccessful Indigogo campaign years earlier in 2017. Pretending I'm a Superman has since gained independent backing.

The film features extensive interviews with Hawk and other skateboarding pioneers, including the likes of Rodney Mullen, Steve Caballero, and Chad Muska. Both Hawk and Mullen will be joining the filmmakers in a panel discussion following the screening of the doc.

Pretending I'm a Superman will premiere on February 29.
