ABOUT THE FILM
We accompany the talented and committed inner city youth of Regent Park, Toronto as they come into their own through commitment and the exploration of their artistic talents. This documentary invites us into this vibrant community project, organised from within, that demonstrates positive alternatives are possible. The beautifully shot footage of a community’s articulate young artists vividly portrays a model of citizenship anywhere.
