Really like the vibe of this short profile by Vancouver-based filmmaker Brock Newman. Newman beautifully balances the strength derived from a rough East-London upbringing with the vulnerability of having one’s home determined by someone else. As Newman shared with us:

Jake Quentin Lewis-Hurn contacted me about one week before he was going to be kicked out of Canada due to an expiring visa. I was compelled by the thought of someone making a home only to have it ripped away from them years later.”

Watch “Citizen” above and check out some black and white portraits taken during the shoot below!
