In the vein of the extraordinary NYC documentary Dark Days by Marc Singer with music by DJ Shadow about an entire sub-culture living below the city in abandoned tunnels, I have discovered a local Vancouver documentary by wheel-chair bound director Murray Siple. It’s about homeless men running the gauntlet in shopping carts and presented to us by the NFB. We’re not affiliated with the project — and it’s on a much lighter note then Dark Days (view trailer) — but we get enough bottle collectors in Trounce Alley that we certainly enjoyed it. Perhaps a new sport in the making.
Thanks to a friend from Portland who first sent me a link to the Mercury’s thursdays morning blog post where I first viewed this documentary.
