A meditative documentary short about living your life as a middle-aged skater by directors Jesse Barron and Zach Hagy. Produced by Eightfold Collective (previously featured here), “Nothing In Return” contends with what skateboarding really means, especially when the reality of slamming your body on concrete over and over makes the physical risks so clear. As much as people may try to put the rewards into words it might be something that only a skater will ever truly understand.
