MORE ABOUT THE FILM
The Stairs tells the story of Marty, Greg and Roxanne, who each survived decades of street-involvement. Using their experiences to ease the paths of others, they perform social work in their old neighbourhood, while struggling to maintain their newly-found stability. Told over five years, The Stairs examines life on society’s margins. Defying stereotypes through intimate portraits, its remarkable subjects are surprising, funny, shocking and moving.
This film discusses difficult subjects including fatal overdose, police violence, violence against women and sexual assault.
With the increase in COVID-19 transmission locally and the transmissibility of the Delta variant, we want to provide a few reminders to keep you, other attendees, and the community safe.
