Event Description

Cinema Politica in partnership with the Salvation Army Caring Place, CEED Centre, Citizens Bridge and the City of Maple Ridge will be screening the documentary Low Down Tracks. We are pleased to be part of the Homelessness Action Week event, “Where The HeART Is”. This film is a celebration of street music and survival with those who chose to live on the outside. It tells the personal stories of homeless and “home free” musicians through their music. Their lyrics are honest, heartfelt and passionate, but their freedom to perform is threatened by the city’s bureaucratic busker system. Shining a light on the struggles they face—be it in shelters, with social programs, with their addictions and abuse—a soundtrack evolves from the island ferry docks and freeway underpasses, rooming houses and rooftops, showing us that music is the common language in this empowering celebration of survival.

As Anthony Van Zant one of the musicians featured in the film says, "I see this film as an act of defiance. As a challenge to stigma, as a voice.”
