"We [Janis Cole and I] were unconsciously making films that were trying to remove labels from people, which later became a very conscious thing for us when we started doing Prison for Women and Hookers on Davie. We started out by giving a voice to our friends who weren't ashamed of who they were or what they did, such as being a prostitute, or being gay."
