Cinema Politica Ridge Meadows in partnership with the City of Maple Ridge and the Salvation Army Ridge Meadows Ministry is pleased to host this screening of Us And Them in recognition of Homelessness Action Week.
Filmed over a decade, Us And Them is a deeply visceral film about transformation through human connection.
This moving documentary follows the relationship between filmmaker Krista Loughton and four critically homeless individuals and reveals the heartrending realities of their lives. Krista who has her own issues with depression is questioned by Dr Gabor Maté, a prominent Vancouver-based addiction specialist, about her need to relieve pain in the world. Krista embarks on a mission to help these people but in the process is healed herself.
“The film’s chief strength is how it transcends stereotypes, humanizing endearing characters while revealing their stories.” Times Columnist
