CBC's Red Button: Toronto Youth Documents His Life of Homelessness and Addiction
This video is from a storytelling project produced by CBC's Short Docs.
HERE'S HOW THE PRODUCERS DESCRIBE THIS STORYTELLING PROJECT:
“I don’t want to be a career homeless person.” Rabbit, 23, is homeless and has an addiction to fentanyl and other opioids. He was given a camera phone and captured a day in his life.
This video is part of RED BUTTON, an innovative storytelling project where the documentary subjects become the filmmakers.
In the first series of RED BUTTON stories, homeless youth in Toronto used camera phones to film their lives. Participants were given audio/video gear and offered a workshop to learn the basics of filmmaking. The homeless youth featured also received one-on-one guidance from professional filmmakers.
