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.

Emotional Documentary

I too got to see the Hookers on Davie St months ago before I moved to my new location and this is one documentary that shows you what Davie St. was like back in the early 1980's. Today it looks cleaner but back then it looked like a seedy street you would see on crime shows. It's very unlikely some of these prostitutes are still living but they may be some that has changed their lives and pretty much are living better lives than they did back then. I hope they may one day an update on these original prostitutes and see where are they now. Still the documentary was watchable to see especially this one transvestite having a fit that even Big Bird can't never duplicate.
