A Toronto visitor investigates the city’s condominiums to explore the self-destructive nature of the city’s ecosystem and reconcile their admiring perspective of the city as an outsider vs the harsh realities of its residents.
Will Rance, the writer and director of Glass Roses--a self-professed fan of the city of Toronto--participates in dialogues about the city's condominiums and the seediness beneath their visually pleasant veneers, reconciling his aesthetic appreciation for the city with the corruption of capitalism, hoping to find new conclusions through these conversations.

Sound Mixer/DOP: Ford Coukell (he/him)
Ford here, I’ll be the Sound department and Riley’s partner in crime as DOP. This is such an intriguing story and I want to give it the right tonal mood through what the audience is shown. I am so excited to bring this project to life with such a talented crew. Outside of this project I love film and live for music. I am also an avid photographer, and independent musician with multiple releases on streaming services.
