The Scrapper

If you haven’t checked out Jon O‘s documentary The Scrapper, there is an upcoming screening (City Paper writeup to boot).

It’s really great, Jon gives the viewer a chance to hang out with Joe-pushing his shopping cart on roller blades around Kensington.  The film gets you inside-not only close to Joe’s story, but his humanity.

That Jon O is mad talented.  Below is from an email form him.

It will happen @ 941 Theater
941 N. Front St.
Philadelphia PA 19123
(on Front just as you hit the cobblestone)

  1. I love the film; it’s totally dope. I recommend viewing it if you haven’t. Be sure to talk to Jon about the process, too.
