Kindness: Taking It To the Streets
Social Sciences and Humanities • 27m
The scales of social justice do not always tip equally. There are members in society who fall through very wide cracks, and without love and kindness and caring, their climb out of darkness can be slippery at best. This 27-minute film shows the positive differences being made by caring people in Yellowknife who strive to put us all on equal footing.
Yellowknife is a sub-arctic community that faces the challenges of dealing with poverty in the North. This film provides a glimpse at the community organizations that provide support for and assistance to people in need.
