FILM SYNOPSIS:

Filmed over a decade, US AND THEM is a deeply visceral film about transformation through human connection. It all begins when filmmaker Krista Loughton is questioned by addiction expert Dr. Gabor Maté 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.

Under the mentorship of Hereditary Chief Phil Lane Jr., Krista decides to help her friends learn how to balance on the First Nations Medicine Wheel. In the beginning, there is connection and hope, but unfortunately, none are able to conquer their addictions or significantly change their lives. And then tragically, one dies. Out of her league, Krista seeks out the counsel of Dr. Maté, who forces her to confront her own motivations. Krista confesses her own emotional struggles with her remaining street friends. They display an extraordinary empathy and wisdom no one could have anticipated.

Screening of this film has been made possible (and free to the public) due to the support of KACL, Making Kenora Home, the City of Kenora, the Kenora District Services Board and Seven Generations Educational Institute.
