“The family was very dysfunctional…I always felt like I just wanted to get out of where I lived. I wanted to prove myself. I just wanted to get to America and become something.” — Tas Pappas

They were brothers — they became the #1 and #2 internationally-ranked skateboarders in the entire world — and it all came crashing down. The very young, very brash Tas and Ben Pappas came to America by way of Australia, and blew the doors off the competitive skate scene of the ‘90s. As they defeated the likes of Tony Hawk, spiraled into a drug-fueled nightmare and burned every possible bridge along the way, cameras were rolling, leaving behind a massive trail of archival and home movie footage. In this unflinching, never-before-seen account, we witness the dark consequences of Tas and Ben’s rapid success, their intense fraternal bond, and their journey from the pinnacle of their sport into a hellish bottoming-out. From the makers of Exit Through the Gift Shop and Senna, All This Mayhem is a searing account of what happens when raw talent and extreme personalities collide, and tells of a tragedy too incredible to believe.
