Les chariots de l'enfer

| 59 min

Long métrage documentant la vie de sans-abri du nord de Vancouver. Dans un décor idyllique, ils ont transformé la collecte des bouteilles vides en une sous-culture florissante : la course de chariots d’épicerie. Ancien adepte de la planche à neige et réalisateur de films de sport, Murray Siple revient au cinéma pour relater l’histoire de ces itinérants amateurs de sensations fortes.

Before viewing, ask students to consider stereotypes of homeless people. Compare responses after viewing. Initiate debate: is there a legitimate place for the homeless in a healthy society? to what degree are these men free? Is their self-appointed job a valid one? Using various strategies (Thinking Hats, Four Corners, Value Lines), provoke thinking and writing about the ethical and social issues in the film, and how they apply to local communities.
