where now? is a narrative-driven documentary series about place-making in a rapidly gentrifying Toronto, brought to you by sisterhood media.
In an unprecedented moment of Torontonian fame, where now? expounds on what the city and its residents truly stand to gain — and, of course, lose — in its climb to a become an internationally-recognized cultural hub. who reaps the benefits? and who is its first casualty?
where now? is directed by Amani Bin Shikhan, a writer, editor and researcher, among other things. In her work, Shikhan aims to frame and re-frame questions of tradition and movement through the lens of black cultural expressions and their multidisciplinary histories. She loves this city more than she should and is deep-in-her-bones tired of condos. she doesn’t want to leave.
Produced by sisterhood media, a platform dedicated to creating and curating content for folks on the margins. They produce multimedia works focusing on identity and community. where now? is one of these projects.
