A short (9 minute) documentary about hunger in the apparently affluent West Island was written, directed and produced by Concordia University students, Akshay Grover, Max Duguay, and Luca Brown, with coordination by the West Island Community Resource Centre (WICRC).
WICRC comments: The West Island Community Sector came together to look at the key issues regarding poverty in our community. Through working groups and committees, collectively we decided to focus on food security challenges of the West Island. The West Island has a reputation of being a wealthy community, one without struggles and vulnerability. This misconception couldn’t be farther from the truth. This short documentary highlights the voices of West Islanders and their struggles.
