Crimes Of Necessity

 

I was asked by a friend to spend an afternoon with David Johnston, documenting some of his experiences living outside in Victoria. It was the day before David's sentencing for his 3rd breach of a court order to not sleep at St. Ann's Academy, (currently the Ministry of Advanced Education).

The film we made on 'The Right to Sleep' consisted mostly of interviews with people who were living outside, (most of it is viewable on this website), talking about their personal experiences with bylaws that are unconstitutional and how the police and security guards move them along.

After Tent City, i continued documenting issues surrounding poverty and homelessness and almost always had a video camera with me, (sometimes two).
