'To shoot a film with young people who have been through hellish life experiences, and who are consequently vulnerable, is to enter murky moral territory. It makes complete sense to innovate and fictionalize, to protect the young actors by translating their extremely personal stories into fiction; to not specify exactly what really happened to whom. It's a smart move - but in this case, it also proves to be a somewhat probelmatic one.' Meg Mundell reviews Khoa Do's 'docu-drama' 'The Finished People' (2003), a film about homelessness on the streets of Sydney.
