Bevel Up (2)

The street nurses of Bevel Up are calling on the Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games to dedicate former Olympic cars to fight AIDS. So many agencies in the Downtown Eastside could use outreach vans for their work. Whether delivering a meal to a man with AIDS in a SRO in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, or providing a means to get an HIV positive woman to a doctor’s appointment or for an agency to provide services for sex workers – no Buick need be wasted!

Tomorrow, January 16 marks 6 years since The Corporation launched in Canadian Theatres. That day it also screened at The World Social Forum in Mumbai, and at the Sundance Festival in Salt Lake City. As the decade turned, The Corp found itself in two "top ten" lists for the decade -- Eugene Hernandez of Indie Wire, lists is as on of the top 10 docs of the decade and Peter Hall of Hollywood.com puts in his top 10 of underrated movies of the '00's.
One of the things I have always noted is the staying power of this film. It remains the reason people find us as it's popularity is not waning.
