It was a rainy and cloudy New Jersey afternoon, when thousands of fans stood chanting Malto’s name. The Kansas City native casually rolls away from a backside 5050 down the ‘impact section’s’ 11-stair hubba, becoming Street League’s 2011 SLS Champion and winner of $200,000. Just two years later Sean Malto would miss an entire year of Street League, undergoing multiple surgeries and weekly rehabilitation therapy. Suffering a terrible injury Sean completely dislocated his ankle, misplacing bone fragments in his ankle’s joint surfaces and tearing his ligaments. Sean found himself in a position he had yet to face. Time stopped, his career halted, and the most important journey of his life began. As we can expect, going through an injury is one of the toughest battles for an athlete to navigate. Most athletes will never make it back to their original form, but as we see in the film Sean is no ordinary skateboarder. Shot entirely on iPhone and directed by Ty Evans, Ghost Digital Cinema presents MALTO, the story of Sean Malto’s year-long road to recovery.
