We’re hosting a screening of Us & Them, a Canadian documentary created by Krista Loughton on October 11 at Rainbow Cinemas in Cobourg. Ten years in the making, this is the story of Krista’s experience learning about the lives of four chronically homeless people.

“It feels good to contribute to my community. Let’s build on what we already have… a strong, vibrant, united community.”
