Wassup Rockers, Larry Clark's 2005 comedy-drama, follows the adventures of an unlikely band of teenagers as they cope with life in Southern California. Jonathan (Jonathan Velasquez) is an El Salvadorian refugee who finds himself in South Central Los Angeles surrounded by Mexican-Americans and African-Americans. As if that did not make him and his fellow Salvadorian buddies stick out like a sore thumb, the guys have also rejected the prevailing hip hop music the neighborhood kids listen to for classic punk rock. Jonathan, Kico (Francisco Pedrasa), Eddie (Eddie Velasquez), and a couple other guys play in their own punk band, and fully participate in the area's skateboarding culture. One day, they decide to skate at a legendary spot in Beverly Hills. However, things can never be that straightforward. Away from their South Central surroundings, the kids are suddenly on the run in this foreign neighborhood, as the local skaters and cops are on their tail.
