Free Screening of The Stairs documentary & Peer panel discussion

St. Stephen’s Community House in partnership with Queen West Central Toronto Community Health Centre is hosting a free screening of The Stairs documentary on Wednesday May 10, 2017 at 1pm – 3:30pm (see attached flyer).  Screening will be followed by a panel discussion with Peer Workers (People with Lived Experience) from QW-CTCHC, St Stephen’s Community House, Street Health and Regent Park CHC.

The Stairs tells the story of Marty, Greg and Roxanne, each of whom survived decades of street-involvement. Using their experiences to ease the paths of others, each performs social work in their old neighbourhood, while struggling to maintain their newly-found stability. Told over five years, The Stairs is a non-judgemental character study of life on society’s margins. Defying stereotypes through intimate portraits, its remarkable subjects are by turns surprising, funny, shocking and moving.

Winner: Toronto Film Critics Association, Best Canadian Film of 2016
