Concrete Dreams (2017)
3 Part Documentary Series
Paulina Jimenez, Villa Park IL resident, artist and super-mom, becomes this Chicago suburb’s most passionate yet unassuming skateboarding advocate. With zero experience in municipal activism, she arms herself with the Tony Hawk Public Skatepark Development Guide and fervently rallies local skateboarders, businesses, and residents to support fundraising efforts for a new community skatepark.
Episode 1 of Concrete Dreams profiles Paulina as she enthusiastically navigates the often bumpy road of Village Board meetings, funding sources, and deadlines, all in an effort to create a safe space for her son and the community to skate.
