Storyline

Filmmakers Holly Dale and Janis Cole explore the culture of Davie Street, located in the underbelly of Vancouver, where dozens of prostitutes work and live every day. Surprisingly, they find that the sex trade there is stable and largely non-violent, and that the women who work on Davie Street meet daily to discuss safety and health issues and don't use pimps. The film also includes candid interviews with the prostitutes and footage of negotiations with potential clients.

Interesting..
17 August 2004 | by (Vancouver, BC) – See all my reviews

Saw this on the Documentary Channel recently and thought it was pretty good. Davie Street in Vancouver is quite different now and it was interesting to see how things once were. I remember going down there as a kid to oogle the hookers there. So sad to see the kids my age being there. Characters were interesting and I was wishing I knew what had become of them since the film was made. The subjects in the movie gave a pretty good indication what life on the street was like then, and were surprisingly coherent.

7/10!
