Us & Them
On International Women’s Day (Thursday, March 8, 2018), MHRI will host a screening of ‘Us and Them” a film by Krista Loughton. We invite you to become involved with this important event on International Women’s Day.
FILMED OVER A DECADE, US AND THEM is a deeply visceral film about transformation through human connection. US AND THEM is a powerful documentary composed of striking portraits of four extraordinary homeless individuals as they struggle with addictions. Released in 2016, the film is directed by Krista Loughton and Jennifer Abbott (The Corporation). The story follows Loughton’s ten-year journey exploring the worlds of Dawnellda, Stan, Eddie and Karen, who she attempts to help. In the end, it is Loughton herself who is changed. Punctuated with First Nations wisdom, and Dr. Gabor Maté’s insight into the root causes of addiction, the film shows there is no difference between US AND THEM.
