All This Mayhem is a searing account of what happens when raw talent and extreme personalities collide. In this unflinching, never-before-seen account of drugs and the dark side of professional skateboarding, brothers Tas and Ben Pappas’ intense bond and charisma take them from the pinnacle of their sport into a spiralling world of self-destruction.

“Scarface meets Senna, All This Mayhem is Greek tragedy on skateboards. It is that rare, rare thing, a documentary with no political agenda to hawk, simply a gripping and deeply moving film. A must see.” – Kate Spicer The Times (UK)
