Skating Ordos, China's Ghost City

  • Filmmaker Charles Lanceplaine follows a group of skateboarders to an abandoned city in Inner Mongolia

  • Tags:

    Called the "Dubai of northern China," Ordos is an Inner Mongolian city that's rich in resources and filled with interesting public architecture. Oddly, however, barely anyone lives there. Designed to be the home of one-million inhabitants, today only a few thousand people live there, making Ordos a veritable modern-day ghost town -- and a perfect skateboarding destination. Filmmaker Charles Lanceplaine followed skaters Jay Meador, Gustav Nymans, Tommy Zhao, Alexander Hwang, James Capps, Elliott Zelinskas, and Brian Dolle to the city to be the first to skate it and document their adventures there. What they found was an urban landscape just begging to be ripped. Great concept, solid video.
