54:00 Eliot Zalan hopes that you will vote for ‘Crisis in the Greenest City’ and a $10,000 prize to make a new video series on inner-city issues. Vancouver’s housing crisis leads the headlines, but the media fails to tell the whole story. Crisis in the Greenest City flips the script on the dominant narrative surrounding the housing crisis. Engaging the community at large, and amplifying the voices of those underrepresented, Crisis in the Greenest City will cut through the white noise repeated ad nauseam in the headlines, giving a deeper understanding of the current situation.
