Synopsis

Skateboarding lives hard, dies hard and saw its first prominence in Chicago in the early 1990′s. Wing Ko was there documenting Jesse Neuhaus, Steven ‘Stevie Dread’ Snyder and Eric Murphy, sponsored riders for the famed Alva Skateboards at a time when very few Midwestern skaters got recognition by industry-leading West Coast companies.

The Brotherhood: Chicago is more than a film about the love of skateboarding, it's about pursuing one's passion as life happens.
