This is a film about the people who live, work and volunteer in Winnipeg's West Central district, one of Canada's poorest neighbourhoods. For decades it has been the first home to newcomers from around the world. But for many Winnipeggers the perceived crime rate and sensational media attention has made West Central an often feared and misunderstood community.
The passion of residents and new comers who settle in West Central has surpassed the sensationalism of violence to make it a neighbourhood worth fighting for.
Directed by Dodie & Jeff McKay for MTS Allstream Video on Demand. Approximately 40 min.
