[OPIRG-EVENTS] Tonight! 7 pm! Film! Free!

This event is free to the public and is a part of Radical Frosh, put on by 
OPIRG- Carleton.

Tonight at 7 pm, come to 100 St. Patrick’s (The Art Gallery Building on 
Carleton Campus) to see the premier Ottawa screening of SPIT- Squeegee Punks 
in Traffic. Director Daniel Cross and subject of the film, Roach, will join 
us for a discussion after the film.

About the film:

Roach has been living on the streets since age 14, he’s rebellious, loud and 
defiant. As part of S.P.I.T., Roach has been given a camera to document his 
world. The footage he gets is urgent, because there’s a war against squeegee 
kids. The RoachCAM is positioned behind enemy lines: living in derelict 
buildings, squeegeeing for money, being hunted by police. The viewer is 
forced to look at the living reality of Roach and his friends: Hungry on the 
streets in one of the world’s most prosperous countries, classified as 
thugs, criminals, and enemies. These kids refuse to obey, assimilate, and 
conform to society’s values - their beliefs and realities are scarred into 
their flesh in the form of piercings, tattoos, track marks, bruised veins, 
rotting teeth, gangrene, scurvy...

Where: 100 St. Pat's, Carleton University. Take buses 4, 7 or the O-train
Time: 7 pm Tonight!
Wheelchair accessible.
This event is Free!
