On the Farm

October 22, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Main character Nikki Taylor represents an amalgamation of the women targeted by Robert William “Willie” Pickton (‘The Pig Farmer Killer’), one of Canada’s most prolific serial killers, active during 1995-2001. Nikki, a 22 year-old single mother, battling her own drug addiction, works as a prostitute in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside (DTES). She, along with DTES social work Elaine Brooks, become the best allies to investigators on the hunt for Pickton, led by police officer Sinead McLeod and RCMP officer Jeff Keeley. Their collective advance towards Pickton’s arrest, despite the ever-growing list of missing women, is impeded by resistance from police and RCMP superiors, resistance which can only be read as an indifference towards the marginalized women of the DTES.

Viewer discretion advised.
