Spadina

This enjoyable film focuses on the Eastern European Jewish immigrants—and children of immigrants—who made downtown Spadina their home. Energized by socialism, Zionism, trade union movements and passionate demonstrations, they created a vital garment industry. Produced at a time when there were plenty of remnants of this now-lost community, filmmaker David Troster captures the last of the Jewish-run operations in the fashion district, the infamous United Dairy before it moved uptown, and major figures from the heyday of the Toronto Jewish union movements. Spadina remains a well-made piece of filmmaking and historiography, and has since become a very precious document.
