A moving story of two boys from Toronto's Regent Park housing project

Synopsis

Invisible City is a feature-length documentary by Academy Award nominated Director, Hubert Davis, about transformation of community and identity. The film is set in the inner-city housing project of Toronto's Regent Park; Kendell and Mikey, like their surroundings are in the process of transformation; the environment and social pressures tempting them to make poor choices, their mothers and mentors rooting for them to succeed. Turning his camera on the often ignored inner city, Academy-award nominated director Hubert Davis sensitively depicts the disconnection of urban poverty and race from the mainstream.
