Home Feeling: Struggle for a Community

Top of page

The Jane-Finch "Corridor" is an area of six square blocks in Toronto's North York. To the residents of Metro Toronto, the Corridor evokes images of vandalism, high-density subsidized housing, racial tension, despair and crime. By focusing intimately on the lives of several of the residents, many of them Blacks or members of other visible minorities, and their relationship with police, social service agencies, and other major institutions that affect their lives, the film provides a powerful view of a community that, contrary to its popular image, is working towards a more positive future.
