Murray Siple was one of the first original Canadian snowboard and extreme sport filmmakers and photographers. 13 years ago, he got into a car accident that paralyzed him from the waist down. For almost a decade, his fast-paced career was halted- but then in 2008, he finished “Carts of Darkness” – a feature-length documentary about a group of homeless men who have combined their livelihood of bottle picking with the extreme sport of racing shopping carts down the steep hills of North Vancouver. The National Film Board of Canada’s Vancouver production won Best Documentary Program (Nature/Environment/Adventure category) at the Leo Awards, (BC’s awards for film excellence), along with five other nominations (including Best Direction) In addition to this highly regarded honor, Murray was also the 2005 recipient of the Lieutenant Governor of BC’s Special Jury Award – “Outside the Box” Merit Award. Here is a little glimpse into Murray’s life and projects to come.
