There's No Place Like This Place, Anyplace profiles the issue of gentrification in Toronto through the history, demolition and redevelopment of the historic Honest Ed's department store.

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.

If you're looking for ways to support the community work shown in the film, director Lulu Wei suggests supporting A Different Booklist Cultural Centre: https://adbcc.org/donations/buyabrick
