Speak City: Lisa Steele & Kim Tomczak 
Speak City delivers a unique glimpse of Toronto through its most omnipresent yet most innocuous markers: street signs. Over a two-year period, Steele and Tomczak documented the street signs of one intersection within each one of Toronto's designated neighbourhoods. The result is a 30- minute video that recreates the artists' journey through their own city. Speak City is a work of urban contemplation; its only reference to human existence comes through the sounds of an occasional distant object or site-specific sound.
The world premiere of the newest installation by Governor General's Award-winning duo Lisa Steele and Kim Tomczak is an intriguing single channel piece structured around the 140 official neighbourhoods designated by the City of Toronto. The work is presented as part of the Toronto International Film Festival's celebration of the 175th anniversary of the City of Toronto.

From September 5 through September 19, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Nathan Phillips Square, TIFF Box Office Tent.
