About The Film
The Rec is a current, edgy story about the secrets of five black men. Set against the back drop of displaced poverty-stricken families in Regent Park, the story centers around Sheldon, a community center worker. Five friends gather inside a community centre about to be demolished, to say good bye one last time to the place they all called home for many years. Sheldon reminisces about what the community centre means to him and his friends.
This short is a forum for urgent commentary about both the disintegration of the notorious low-income housing complex Regent Park and the lives of the young men most affected by it. The Rec gives a gritty, uncensored look at the lives of black men. No subject is taboo, from interracial dating, commitment phobia, gun violence, sexuality, drugs and love. Every stereotype of black men will be critically examined and explored.
