Watch: Short Doc 'Heart of Resilience' About a Boxing Gym in Toronto

Heart of Resilience Short Film

“One extra push, one extra punch – that’s all it takes.” With the Toronto Film Festival coming to an end this weekend, we wanted to feature a short film made in Toronto showing how resilient and wonderful the city is. Heart of Resilience is a short film commissioned by the City of Toronto, made by filmmaking brothers Ryan Freeman and Brad Freeman, who run the studio Lossless Creative out of Toronto. This is the story of MJKO (official website), a non-profit boxing gym located in the lower income neighborhood of South Parkdale.
