WATCH / Ordos / Charles Lanceplaine

Ordos by Charles LanceplaineThere are very few firsts still available to be had. But, when there are any to be had, it is usually taken by those who dwell on the cusp, so to speak. Skaters, are one such a collection.

Filmmaker Charles Lanceplaine took to the area of Ordos located in Inner Mongolia and ‘known for its lavish government projects, including the new Ordos City, a large city with abundant infrastructure, seldom used by residents and frequently described as a ghost city.

Although, to the city’s credit, it did host the 2012 Miss World final. As well also a whole bunch of skaters who knew how to put the architecture, open space, stair sets and rails to good use.

“Be the first skaters to skate a city – check.”
