Impact | Vancity Theatre Screening
Italian filmmaker Ruggero Romano has called Vancouver home since 2016 and witnessing the struggle of homelessness, poverty and addiction in his adopted city, was moved to make a film about the inhabitants of postal code V6A: the area commonly known as the Downtown Eastside. Designed to challenge expectations and inspire locals to think about their fellow citizens in a new light, V6A is also an unexpected celebration of the resilience and beauty of the human spirit.
In the search for truth and authenticity, the film explores human nature in its fight against the toughest, often man-made odds by questioning the definition of "Home".
