Us and Them Thunder Bay

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 roots of addiction, the film shows there is no difference between US AND THEM.

 

To bring attention to the issues of homelessness and addiction, US AND THEM is touring Canadian communities in 2017. So far, at every showing, the audience response is the same -- they are deeply moved. People leave the screening and typically never look at a homeless person the same way again.

United Way of Thunder Bay is leading the way to a better community by improving the quality of life for all local people. By collaborating with community partners, we are leading the way to addressing social issues in our community and investing in three critical areas: Poverty, Kids and Strong Communities. Donations to the United Way are strategically invested across Thunder Bay to many vital programs and initiatives in these areas, creating a social safety net that works to achieve lasting change for our neighbours, families and friends.
