Movie Info

Mikey and Kendell are two teenage boys growing up in Regent Park, a Toronto housing project that's the oldest public housing development in Canada. Mikey and Kendell are the sort of kids who rank high in the demographic of young men likely to go bad -- they're black, they're growing up in a neighborhood where crime is high and income is low, their fathers are largely absent from their lives, and their surroundings offer them few options outside of illegal businesses. Filmmaker Hubert Davis has been a mentor to Mikey and Kendell, and he follows them through three years of high school in the documentary Invisible City, which presents a compassionate but unblinking look at the circumstances the boys face and their struggle to rise above and make something positive of themselves. Invisible City was an official selection at Toronto's 2009 Hot Docs International Film Festival, where it was named "Best Canadian Feature Documentary."

If there is a flaw cinematically to Invisible City it's the very evenhandedness that is the film's virtue.
