SASU is screening 'Subtext: real stories' by Eric Weissman on Saturday, March J.A. De Seve Theatre (LB-­‐125) Library Building (1400 de Masionneuve west) at 1:00 PM.

The free screening will be followed by a discussion with the filmmaker.

Subtext is a rough-cut documentary exploration. It explores an urban shantytown and the strides of activists, ex-residents, and the City of Toronto to find solutions to homelessness. Its focus is the residents of Tent City. The subjects dictate where cameras go, leading us into their pasts, conflicts, and daily lives -- by road and foot through the urban landscape.  We examine caves on the Don River, squats under the highway, trips to the hospital, and abandoned buildings, but our journey always leads back to Tent City … to a thorough, often surprising understanding of the people who lived there.

Eric Weissman is currently a SIP doctoral student in Sociology & Anthropology at Concordia University.
