"Filmed over a decade, Us and Them is a deeply visceral film about transformation through human connection. It begins when filmmaker Krista Loughton is questioned by addiction expert Dr. Gabor Mate about her need to relieve pain in the world. This takes her back in time, when she befriended 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"
Please join us in a screening of this evocative and thought-provoking film, which will include a 30min Q&A session with members of the Journey home board.
