Shootings. Rape. Mysterious blood splatters. Is the tooth fairy real? These are some of the conversation topics for eight and nine-year-olds in the Jane-Finch area of Toronto. While their single mothers struggle to make rent, the kids often fend for themselves. Listen to This documents the first year of a songwriting workshop created for these kids. The film focuses on the musicians who teach the program and the students who took part. An inspiring documentary about what it means to be heard.
Produced in cooperation with TV Ontario and BRAVO.
