Home Feeling: Struggle for a Community

Synopsis: 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 focussing intimately on the lives of several of the residents, many of them from the Black community or members of other racially diverse groups, 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 toward a more positive future.
