While filmed around downtown Victoria BC, Us and Them, produced by Krista Loughton and Jennifer Abbott (The Corporation) could take place in any Canadian town. Through her compassionate style of documentary filmmaking, Krista Loughton lends a familiarity to all that she interviews. Krista’s subjects aren’t “just homeless.” They are not faceless apparitions wandering the streets. These people are the friends and family that we all know in our communities, who need our support.
The documentary follows the lives of four individuals who lived on the streets in Victoria, BC. Filmed over a decade, Us and Them is a deeply visceral film about transformation through human connection.
