“A strange mix of high-octane action, delicate social probing and charismatic characters that’s hard to ignore, and incredibly fun to watch” – Vancouver Sun

In the picture-postcard community of North Vancouver, local bottle pickers have turned the act of binning into a thriving subculture of shopping cart racing. Murray Siple, a former snowboarder and sport film director injured in a serious car accident ten years ago, returns to filmmaking to capture their story in the documentary Carts of Darkness. Shot in stunning high-definition and featuring tracks from Black Mountain, Ladyhawk, Vetiver, Bison, and Alan Boyd, of Little Sparta, Carts of Darkness borrows the cinematic language of extreme sports films to capture the risk and intensity of life lived on the very edge.

Carts of Darkness will be preceded by Prize Home, a new short film by Murray Siple.
