Throw, an inspirational documentary about yo-yo champion Coffin Nachtmahr


Thanks to Doc Pop for the heads up on Throw, a short documentary by Early Light Media.

Throw tells the story of an outsider from East Baltimore, an area challenged by gang violence and poverty. Often misunderstood, Coffin Nachtmahr found acceptance among a subculture of “throwers” and it turns out, he’s a virtuoso. He now helps others find a creative and social outlet by sharing the very toy that inspired him.
