Screening of Film “Us & Them” @ FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre - The Film House
Nov 6 @ 7:00 pm

Filmed over a decade, Us and Them is a deeply visceral film about transformation through human connection. Krista Loughton, filmmaker, befriends four chronically homeless people in an effort to help them heal their lives.

These four charismatic people reveal the heartrending realities of their lives. The severe challenges of life on the street are portrayed with an unapologetic openness, in both emotive and humorous ways. All are struggling with addiction issues rooted in their painful childhood histories.

You are invited to a free screening of the film followed by a discussion on poverty and homelessness in Niagara.

RSVP only to Shoneez Munshi (see contact information above).

This screening is hosted by the United Way of St. Catharines & District.
