Hit the Streets: Homelessness and Disability

Judy Koch

2002, 32:00 minutes, colour, english


Hit the Streets is based on a passionate series of interviews done in the summer and fall of 2001. It shows how difficult it is for disabled people on the street. People from a wide variety of backgrounds were interviewed including Bruce Stoney Point, a native alcoholic; Kathy Hardill, a public health nurse; Bob Rose from the Parkdale Activity and Recreation Centre and Geoffrey Reaume, a historian who survived the psychiatric system. Each of them talk about the issue from their unique point of views.

Hit the Streets is dedicated to Brian Boyd, a homeless man featured in the video who died in December 2002.
