INTERNATIONAL PREMIERE It’s not every day that one citizen cuts through big city bureaucracy the way carpenter Khaleel Seivwright did in the first winter of quarantine in Toronto. Moved by the plight of the growing numbers of the unhoused who could not find space in official shelters, Seivwright built small, life-saving, one-room homes and left them in public parks where they could be claimed by those in need. Initially celebrated by some city workers, the structures soon were targeted for removal by other officials. But not so fast, say the citizens of Toronto. – Jaie Laplante 

The first screening will be followed by a Q&A with director/producer Zack Russell, and subjects Khaleel Seivwright and Taka.
