The new documentary, "Dragonslayer" follows a young, drug-fueled skater bum named Josh "Skreech" Sandoval. Skreech spends his time skateboarding in abandoned pools in Orange County and hanging out with his girlfriend. The film has been hailed as a tale of misspent youth in troubled times. It won the grand jury prize for documentary at last year's SXSW festival. Madeleine spoke to director, Tristan Patterson about what drew him to the project.
