Description

'Creature' is the ferocious and angry former gang leader from one of Canada's most notoriously violent neighborhoods known as Jane & Finch. We are given intimate access to a world where Latoya Jane's friends and brother are being murdered around her. This is a life of daily struggle to bring 'Creature' under control played out in her ongoing inner conflict between good and evil. It started as a news piece but as more people such as former Detroit gangster Spider Jones wanted to have their observations recorded this became a documentary on the issue of gang violence that plagues cities. The documentary is recorded using just an DSLR camera combined with homemade videos and photographs. This provides a very personalized perspective and brutally raw view of those living in communities that are marked by perpetual violence and despair. We see how the odds for the Latoya's in that world are stacked against them and how our society is creating ever more gangsters in the 'perfect societal storm' that is made up of: 1. Family Issues 2. Environmental Issues 3. Public Apathy Thus the film shows how creatures are made and how they can be prevented and rescued. This is done by contrasting people from divergent socioeconomic positions in life but share the same core essence to their being. It is in this way we see how different outcomes of people with the same personal issues is realized in our society. Latoya's desire to bring in the girl is about subduing the 'creature' that is harbored within all of us. Which will prevail in this real life drama between good versus evil? Will it be the gangster or the girl? Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Creature/652448521472033?ref=hl Twitter: https://twitter.com/Creature_Doc
