Carts of Darkness  JAN 26 2009

For those that enjoyed the trailer for Carts of Darkness I posted a couple of months ago, an exciting follow-up: The National Flim Board of Canada has posted the entire film online for anyone to watch.

Murray Siple's feature-length documentary follows a group of homeless men who have combined bottle picking with the extreme sport of racing shopping carts down the steep hills of North Vancouver. This subculture depicts street life as much more than the stereotypes portrayed in mainstream media. The film takes a deep look into the lives of the men who race carts, the adversity they face and the appeal of cart racing despite the risk.

BTW, this is but one film of hundreds of shorts, animated films, and documentaries that the NFB recently put online for viewing.
