A film by Jason Knight
(Originally released July 2010, this version was re-rendered in higher quality and re-uploaded to Geoffmobile to reach a greater audience)
A camera crew sets out to one of the most vibrant and socially diverse parts of Vancouver Canada – the downtown Granville strip. They ask a single question to people on the street and record their responses.
The question is: “If you were in charge of the world, what would you change?”
This simple but profound question allows the film participants to bring their voices into public view, and propose real-world social, environmental, and economic change.
The type of people that frequent Granville Street vary widely from young wealthy club goers to the homeless. In this film you will observe as we did, that there is no divide in culture when it comes to matters that concern us all. All the answers were unbiased, unselfish and were based on positive changes to communities everywhere, regardless of race, creed or social background, to make the world a better place for everyone.
