Meetup Description: Hello again everyone.
I know I said there would be no meetup this month, and that hasn?t changed, but I wanted to let you know about an event, that although film related, still has strong visual elements that I think photographers would be interested in seeing. It also touches on a subject that I think is on a lot of people's minds, so I thought I'd share.
I?ll make a long story short. I worked on a documentary with a local homeless person and I got them to document their day to day life through video. The images turned out really interesting to say the least.
I would love to see anyone interested in this area of research out on April 19th for the festival.
I?ve posted the details and trailer for the film and event below.
On April 19th, at 2pm Romantic Child Studios will be screening our film "The Purpose of Life is Rice... Wink" at the Reel Justice Film Festival.http://www.pivotlegal.org/comingevents.html
The film will be played after "The Devil Plays Hardball" a CBC documentary that pairs homeless people with mentors.
Our documentary takes on a unique perspective. We gave a video camera to Danse Crowkiller (a homeless Vancouver man also featured in "The Devil Plays Hardball") and asked him to show us life through his eyes.
Therefore, rather than an outside-looking-in documentary, we have developed a documentary that is filmed from in the inside looking out.
It's a funny, challenging and charming documentary that allows viewers to do something they wouldn't normally get an opportunity to do: Get to know someone who falls outside the normal gradient of human behavior. It's an intimate opportunity to get to know someone's personality beyond their homelessness.
