There's No Place Like This Place, Anyplace follows director Lulu Wei and fellow members of her community, as they are gradually expelled from their central Toronto neighbourhood by Vancouver-based developer Westbank, which recently began building 800 rental units on the site of legendary bargain department store, Honest Ed’s. Neighbourhood residents of all types—artists, activists, academics, business owners, and politicians—try to come to terms with a changing city, in which much-loved local spaces can no longer survive. The parallels to Vancouver’s housing crisis are obvious as a Toronto city councillor asks the most pertinent question: “Are we building a neighbourhood, or are we just building buildings?” -PC
