Storyline

With the 2010 Olympics approaching, will the world get to know Vancouver's darkest secret? 'Streets of Plenty' chronicles one man's perilous journey to live in Vancouver's downtown east side ghetto. The rules of this twisted social experiment? Starting with only a pair of underwear, he must survive the harsh winter streets for 31 days. He has no money, no friends, no family, and most importantly, no home. He must navigate the institutions, policies and services alongside the thousands of people that call Vancouver's streets home.

See it for what it is
23 November 2019 | by needfultosaySee all my reviews

I understand why people would think this is narcissistic and not showing the problem properly, but you can't expect that. As a whole the film gave me a better sense of the world of the homeless than I know how to find anywhere else. What I understand better is the curiosity to know what homelessness actually is like and understand where it comes from. I have no idea where to find this kind of information so I'm glad this guy went out and saw that world from his specific perspective. Of course there is more to the problem and of it's not a cinematic masterpiece, but you can't expect that from a regular guy like him. Also, it's not as if this one month of using the homeless facilities is going to change anything in the bigger picture. I can't blame him of doing anything bad before I find a better way of learning about this problem.
