Invisible City - DVD/La cité invisible - DVD
the inner city housing project of Toronto’s Regent Park, Kendell and Mikey,
like their surroundings, are in the process of transformation. Half-demolished
buildings, fenced construction zones and vacant lots dot the landscape as the
Regent Park Revitalization project is underway. Isolated socially and
physically since it was built in the late 1940s, the community of Regent Park
is becoming a different place.
over three years, Invisible City is a moving story of two boys
crossing into adulthood – their mothers and mentors rooting for them to
succeed, their environment and social pressures tempting them to make poor
choices. Struggling with the pressures of high school and facing harsh
realities, their voices reveal a range of emotions and insights: anxiety,
hopefulness, vulnerability and understanding.
his camera on the often ignored inner city,
nominated director Hubert Davis sensitively depicts the disconnection of urban
poverty and race from the mainstream. Davis captures the dreams and the
disappointments of Kendell and Mikey at a crucial time in their lives. The
shiny glass towers that rise to completion at the film's end, beckon a new era
– invisible for so long, Regent Park will finally emerge from the shadows and
Kendell and Mikey be as fortunate?
