Ordos is a city in Inner Mongolia, originally built for 1 million people it houses only a few thousand. Huge modern city with practically no foot traffic? It was just a matter of time before someone turned it into a skatepark.
“Kids are like, ‘Let’s move there. It’s a skate paradise!” director Charles Lanceplaine says about the reaction to his newest skate film, Ordos. “But there’s nothing to do there. There are no restaurants or anything. There’s one night club. We tried to go but no one was there.”
We look forward to the sequel set in the impending ghost town of Lanzhou, for which developers are levelling 700 mountains.
