Overlooked

"Overlooked" takes you through five vignettes where death and horror lurk around every bend. Each a tale of tragedy in downtown Vancouver, recounted by a narrator that believes them to be connected by their dereliction.
At its core, "Overlooked" ask you to take a moment to stop and acknowledge just a few of the lives of more than 2000 people living without homes in Vancouver, people you may not notice in your daily commute. Will you notice when there’s a killer about?

Director Statement

Homelessness is a real problem in Vancouver, and It seems as if we are all guilty of indifference toward this reality. A simple first step is acknowledgement; this idea is at the heart of “Overlooked”.
