Directed by Krista Loughton & Jennifer Abbott
2016, Canada, 82 min

Join filmmakers and leaders in the anti-poverty movement as we explore ways to help our city’s most vulnerable. Two days of discussion and screenings about poverty and homelessness.

Introduction by Krista Loughton including singing of Welcoming Song by  Raven Hart 

Filmed over a decade, this is a deeply visceral film about transformation through human connection. Based in Victoria, BC, 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.

Reviews

Remarkable...an intimate journey into the lives of four members of Victoria’s street community, their candid stories putting the film’s social issues into sharp focus...it transcends stereotypes, humanizing endearing characters while revealing their stories. It also explores the causes of addiction with input from Vancouver author and addiction expert Dr. Gabor Maté; Phil Lane Jr., a hereditary chief who uses a sacred First Nations medicine wheel as a healing tool.
