This Dust of Words- March 26, 2010

 A moving story; a powerful film

This Dust of Words is the true story of Liz, a brilliant, promising young woman whose descent into mental illness and homelessness brings her to a faith community in rural America, where the people of the parish and Liz learn what it means to dwell beside each other, struggling to know how to love. Yet this love is given and received, and a relationship is born.

 

Facilitator for the film

Judy Graves, expert on issues of homelessness for the city of Vancouver, will be the facilitator for conversation after the film. Her work among street people began in 1974.  She coordinates the City of Vancouver’s Tenant Assistance Program, designed the Outreach Pilot Project that since 2005 has successfully housed more than 2,000 people in B.C. About 80 per cent of the people helped by this project remain in their housing.
