Come join us for an afternoon with the St. Louis Yo-Yo Club-Moyo and watch the documentary “World On A String” from director Dawn Schwartz. Film starts at 1:05 pm on Saturday, November 17 at Star Clipper in University City, Mo. Show us your best yo-yo “picture trick” and you might be the winner of a “World On A String” t-shirt!
To own your copy of “World On A String” dvd or t-shirt, while supplies last, go to yoyoexpert.com.
“WORLD ON A STRING is a high energy film that combines the most compelling elements of documentary favorites Spellbound and Dogtown and Z-Boys. While it portrays a contest with its drama, disappointment, and exhilaration, it is far more than just a competition. It is a story of a community that has created from scratch the rules and traditions that underlie a vibrant subculture. It’s a story of self-expression, loss, friendship, and coming of age set against the backdrop of a dramatic competition.”
Event was awesome! Thanks guys, Jonathan Walker wins “Best Picture” contest with Nuclear.
2nd Place Christopher Ananda with “Wallet Chain”
3rd place Brandon Cole with “Horizontal Eiffel”
