Us & Them
Canada 2015 82 min. STC
Written and directed by Krista Loughton and Jennifer Abbott
To bring attention to the issue of homelessness on National Housing Day, Raising the Roof is hosting a screening of Us & Them. Filmed over a decade, US & Them is a deeply visceral film about transformation through the human connection. After befriending 4 individuals experiencing homelessness, filmmaker Krista Loughton embarks on a journey to better understand the issue and help her friends. In sharing their own stories, each individual displays an extraordinary empathy and wisdom no one could have anticipated. We come to understand there is no difference between Us and Them.
Director Krista Loughton will join the event for an introduction to the film and a Q&A session
All proceeds from the event will support Raising the Roof's mission to prevent and end homelessness with long-term solutions.
