The Street is a gutsy and intense film made with three homeless men whose lives centre around the Guy Street Subway station in downtown Montreal. This non-fiction feature provides a rare voice for one of the most disenfranchised segments of our society.
The film transcends the statistical and emotional haze which surrounds most public commentary on the homeless. It is a clear window to real individuals who make up faceless ranks of the homeless.
By focusing, not on the social workers, experts or activists who work in the field but on human stories of homeless themselves, The Street sheds new light on a complex problem, building a constructive and active understanding for the viewer.
