Carts of Darkness


Carts of Darkness is an interesting documentary film about a subculture of street life involving the homeless and the extreme sport of cart racing.

The National Film Board of Canada has recently posted the entire film online along with the usual trailers. The film by Murray Siple

“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”.
