Yes, I am starting with a CRACKED article. Despite Cracked’s abrasive tone, they usually include sources. Also, I think that comedy is essential in helping people acknowledge and digest difficult topics. This is a difficult topic. I’m also counting on the humorous pace of this first article to pull you in and make you interested enough to take a look at numbers 2 and 3.
- An unprecedented look into the underworld of Vancouver’s downtown eastside ghetto, this 65 minute documentary follows one man’s 30 day experiment of joining the thousands of homeless, ill, and addicted, who survive the streets of Vancouver’s cold, wet December. He starts off with nothing but a pair of underwear. Where he ends up is a place he never knew existed, even though its a place he passed by every day. This is the perfect film for anyone who wants to see first hand what life is like on Vancouver’s streets, but doesn’t want to risk murder from gang violence, contracting a fatal or chronic disease, or a life-long addiction to crack or heroin.Nominated for Best Feature Doc, Best Direction in a Feature Doc, and Best Sound Design at the 2011 Leo Awards.
