A documentary about local skateboarding culture and the former skating hot spot outside Wan Chai's Immigration Tower is scheduled to be released on DVD next month. Titled That's I.T. and directed by 25-year-old local skateboarder Nigel Ong Kwan-fai, the hour-long film explores the history and development of skating street culture in Hong Kong since it began in the 1980s. '[Immigration Tower] was the skateboarding paradise,' says Ong. 'It was a place for skateboarders to skate as well as to hang around. The atmosphere there was really good.' Back in 1996, when street skating took off worldwide, some local skaters discovered the public area between Immigration Tower and Tax Avenue and turned it into their playground. The marble pavement, kerbs and stairs made the place a perfect arena. The government outlawed skate-boarding in the area two years ago. The film shows clips of skaters in the area before the ban and interviews with skateboarders. Also featured is Sam Lee Chan-sam, who starred in the 1997 underground hit Made in Hong Kong after director Fruit Chan spotted him in Wan Chai.
