Q&A with director Ross Whelan and artist Tanya Bub after 5:00 and 7:00pm screenings.
This moving and powerful documentary features a glimpse into the lives of 8 members of the Victoria B.C. street community. At the heart of this documentary is an unconventional sculpture. A beautiful woman in an elegant gown. Crafted from raw and humble materials, gathered from the streets of Victoria, her symbolism runs deep, touching on themes of addiction, mental health struggles, poverty, and mortality. Tanya Bub, the artist’s, intention was simple yet profound: to provide a safe space for our street community to share their stories. It worked.
