You have all walked by Peace Park weather it being during a sunny summer Montreal afternoon or a blizzard cold night drunk as hell at 4am, but do you really know what it is all about? Local skateboarder David Bouthillier aka @davidboots has gone and put this certainly solid and meaty documentary together to get you more in the know about this Montreal iconic location.
Peace Park is a documentary about a turf war ragging in a small park in the heart of Montreal's downtown core. Fighting for the public space is a community of lifers that consist of drug dealers, crack addicts, alcoholics, prostitutes, and the homeless. There is also a community of skaters who use this spot because it's perfect for skateboarding. The two communities battle daily over the space, but there exists a larger conflict with the city and broader elements of society who see both groups as "undesirable" - David Boots
