Carts of Darkness

Directed by Murray Siple - 2008

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. Shot in high-definition and featuring tracks from Black
Mountain, Ladyhawk, Vetiver, Bison, and Alan Boyd of Little Sparta.

Produced by the
National Film Board of Canada (NFB).
