Noelle Elia
Toronto, Canada

Comment Film Info & Credits
Have you seen this man? A solid cornerstone of our society for over 40 years, Franco Grosso was Toronto's original Popcorn Man. In the midst of all the downtown traffic and construction, he was always there, ready to serve up a toy or tasty treat. More than just a street vendor, Franco created a dynamic public space for positive interaction between people of all ages, classes, and nationalities. An all-season "human landmark," Franco gave us a good reason to slow down ad share a smile together.
