Written and directed by multi-award-winning filmmaker Shelley Saywell of Bishari Films, Lowdown Tracks is a new and acclaimed documentary film that celebrates the music and stories of those living on the margins of Canadian society. Second place winner of the 2015 Hot Docs Audience Choice Award, Lowdown Tracks has been identified as a highly effective call to action, addressing mental health stigma and issues of homelessness in Canada. The film’s main subjects are talented street musicians and the face of some of Canada’s most vulnerable individuals.

Lowdown Tracks was created in collaboration with Singer/Activist Lorraine Segato. The film features the song ‘Hole in the Wall’, a track from Lorraine Segato’s new CD, along with a soundtrack of music never heard or recorded before, from people who should be listened to. From folk, punk hobo, Americana, and blues, their music resonates with hard times, eerily resembles past times, and throws a new perspective on our times.
