The Decrepit


The Decrepit (2012) is a micro-budget documentary filmed in the summer of 2011 in Vancouver’s Downtown East Side to give a voice to the inhabitants of the area. The area houses thousands of hard drug addicts and prostitutes.

This documentary was made with the assistance of a Vancouver police officer who helped with introducing the subjects, a decade after police officers from the city played a huge role in filming the 2003 award winning documentary Through A Blue Lense which explored the same issues. Nicola who is one of those to feature in this film was one of the main subjects of that earlier film.
