Interesting Documentary
7 August 2002 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

I saw this documentary on "Rough Cuts" on the CBC. It was an interesting look at the people & their experiences while growing up in Regent Park, Toronto. It not only dealt with the people still living there, but the ones that survived the gangs & peer pressure and were able to move on up out of this area. People like Clement Virgo who went on to become an award winning director, plus some other success stories. Although the housing projects in Toronto don't look "ghetto" like some other cities do, there are still the same problems living & trying to survive in a low income neighbourhood like Regent Park. I felt that this film also tried to dispell the myth that everyone on welfare, or in a low income neighbourhood, don't care about their situation. This maybe true for a small few, but the majority of people want to make a better life for themselves & their families, and this film reflects that. It also shows that there is an immense feeling of community. In the film there were a few people that came back to visit friends, even though they themselves had not lived in the area for a long time. In conclusion, society & especially government try to paint low income areas with the same brush, and this film succeeds greatly to reveal that there are real lives beyond the brick and mortar that makes up Regent Park.
