Vancouver-based filmmaker Mirza Kuluglic brings a heartwarming story to life with his new award-winning short film, Work of Life.
The film features a young homeless man struggling to make a living. His counterpart, a tidy businessman, takes an important call that opens the rest of the day. What follows is an endearing tale of teaching hard work, discipline and self-value.
In today’s world homelessness continues to be a problem not only in the states but in Canada as well. Vancouver’s 2018 Homeless Count saw a 2% jump from the previous year, according to the city’s website. As employment numbers continue to fluctuate, this film is a project that is necessary to see. Although the homeless man is slightly confrontational, the businessman continues to try and give him chances to succeed.
This acceptance of the homeless man’s situation is admirable. The subject matter of the film pushes the viewers not to just ignore the less fortunate, but to acknowledge them as your peers and see their potential. I feel as if this is a value many in society lack.
Skimming through Mirza’s channel, the young filmmaker has a variety of different projects including abstract music videos, self-projects, and short films. However, Mirza has only been releasing content for the past year. As the young artist continues to practice and build his art form, we can only expect further success from the Vancouver film maker.
After viewing Work of Life multiple times, I’m anxiously awaiting any announcement releasing information on a part two. In an eight-minute span we as viewers are able to see the character development in such a quick time span. I’m overly excited to see where the man’s feature endeavors will lead him.
