Carts of Darkness

Murray Siple’s feature-length documentary follows a group of homeless men who have combined bottle picking with the extreme sport of racing shopping carts down the steep hills of North Vancouver. This subculture shows that street life is much more than the stereotypes portrayed in mainstream media. The film takes a deep look into the lives of the men who race carts, the adversity they face and the appeal of cart racing despite the risk. Shot in high-definition and featuring tracks from Black Mountain, Ladyhawk, Vetiver, Bison, and Alan Boyd of Little Sparta.

    THAT was inspiring, eye-opening, awesome, sincere and I just connected to the idea of freedom, individualism and the heart in this doc. It was kick ass! I loved all the people in it, the stories behind each of them, the decisions they made. “The only thing with jail is that there are no shopping carts and hills” -Big Al!Everything in this doc. was just great.
