In 2002, Paul Wong recorded Rebecca Belmore’s performance Vigil. “Performing on a street corner in the Downtown East Side, Rebecca Belmore commemorates the lives of missing and murdered aboriginal women who have disappeared from the streets of Vancouver. She scrubs the street on hands and knees, lights votive candles, and nails the long red dress she is wearing to a telephone pole.
