There’s No Place Like This Place, Anyplace

There’s No Place Like This Place, Anyplace looks at the transformation of a much-loved Toronto landmark, the Honest Ed’s block, through the stories of its community members who are forced to relocate when it is sold to a developer. The film chronicles the evolution of their lives as they reconcile their history with the future, all while facing the biggest housing crisis the country has ever seen.

Directed by Lulu Wei, a Toronto based filmmaker whose work explores themes of urbanization and cultural identity, this documentary highlights the many contributors to the Annex community, including generations of Black folks who established their roots in this community. 

Today, A Different Booklist Cultural Centre is working to establish their roots in the new Mirvish Village where we invite the world to witness the culture of Black excellence preserved in Toronto.
