Early in the morning on June 4, 2013, workers from the City of Abbotsford, BC pulled up to a homeless camp on the side of the road and dumped a truckload of chicken manure on the site while those who had been sleeping there scrambled to pull their belongings out of the way. Intended as a "quick and dirty" way to disperse this "problem population," little did those who concocted the scheme realize the public outcry and the legal actions that would unfold. I just happened to be on the ground shooting as this incident played out. The result is a 44-minute documentary that tells the story of a deeply divided community, torn between their desire to help "the least of these" while at the same time providing an environment of freedom and justice for all of its citizens.The music in the trailer is by YUCA (yuca.ca). The film will release in early 2014.
