Selected as part of the series Champ libre by Jacquelyn Mills, director of Geographies of Solitude, currently playing.


An intimate documentary that follows three Montreal homeless men, with an approach devoid of judgment or voyeurism. We follow the men for six years, trapped in a vicious circle that continually leads them back to the street. The characters go through cycles of addiction and recovery, hope and despair, but never lose their dignity, humanity and sense of community. By focusing on just three people, the documentary transforms the “problem of homelessness” into a personal issue, giving audiences access to the human issues behind the social question.
