TVO: "Broke"

"For the down-and-out residents of Edmonton's grim and unforgiving inner city, the AI Trading pawnshop is the bank of the poor. And pawnbroker David Woolfson, a banker of last resort. "I run a legitimate business. I help people who are desperate and I make money off them. Sure I do," says Woolfson. "My wife is not happy about the business I'm in. She says I'm making money from the poor." Broke. a complex, powerful cinéma vérité story of the daily life of an inner city pawn shop."
