Our First project of HIGHRISE, an exploration of life in global vertical urban peripheries, is about to premiere. If you are near or around Toronto, please join us…
Toronto is a city of more than 1000 towers. But we rarely hear from the people who live in them.
Equipped with digital cameras and powerful personal points-of-view, six Toronto residents are documenting their own vertical lives against the backdrop of the city’s ambitious Tower Renewal effort. Their photo stories are the first installment of the National Film Board of Canada’s long-term collaborative documentary project, HIGHRISE, witnessing the human experience in vertical living across the globe.
