My Piece of the City

Celia with Director Mozen Mossanen
Last week I had the privilege of attending a private pre-screening of My Piece of the City, at Daniels Spectrum. A brilliant documentary by Director Moze Mossanen and Producer Teresa M. Ho. The film gives audiences a glimpse of the early days of this area in Toronto; how it came to be Regent Park and the current revitalization as viewed by youth who call this community home.

I walked away feeling Regent Park is more than just a Toronto neighbourhood, and definitely not what the media has represented it as. It is a community of amazing people - young and old from all walks of life. And what a blessing that it's part of Toronto! The cast gives a wonderful performance, I found myself connecting and cheering them all on - as their journey came to life with each frame of the film. I highly recommend you put this on your must see film list - World Premiere Screening Saturday November 18th 2017! (see below to reserve your seat)

MY PIECE OF THE CITY is a new feature-length documentary that tells the story about a group of remarkable young artists in Toronto’s inner-city community of Regent Park as their community undergoes one of the most dramatic urban revitalizations in North America. The young artists come together to perform THE JOURNEY, a musical that helps them explore various challenges during this crucial period of their lives.  MY PIECE OF THE CITY follows these young artists as they create the building blocks of the show, soar with their own artistry, and explore all that they have lost and gained as a new world builds around them.    

My Piece of the City , is showing as part of the 15th annual Regent Park Film Festival - which runs November 15 - 18, 2017 at Daniels Spectrum: 585 Dundas Street East (easily accessible by the 505 street car).... Reserve Your seat  HERE  ... It's a free event.
