While IOC and VANOC policies may be sources of personal frustration, by documenting the people's history of the arts, sports and civic issues around Vancouver, we can effectuate positive change in our community and pass on knowledge for future events.

The lads behind With Glowing Hearts - the Movie demonstrate the importance using creative art to document the social transitons and civic landscape which otherwise go under-noticed.

Meet: John Biehler, John Bollwitt, Rebecca Bollwitt, Duane Storey plus the crew at Vancouver Access 2010 who are providing epic info resources for fans and props to event mapmaker 2010VanFan AKA Andrea.
