RESURRECTION UNITED METHODIST CHURCH—Rebecca Kenyon's award-winning documentary about homelessness in North Carolina, set in Wilmington, shows the breadth of the people affected by the problem, from a female former Marine to a student living under a bridge. The London-based filmmaker was an artist-in-residence at Wilmington's Cucalorus Film Festival, which premiered the documentary last year, and she shot the film with support from the Southern Documentary Fund. Durham Opening Doors, an initiative for the prevention and relief of homelessness, is sponsoring this screening as a part of National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week. Kenyon and Durham community development project manager Lloyd Schmeidler will be present for a post-screening discussion about homelessness in general and in Durham specifically. As frigid weather descends upon the Triangle, this is a good chance to remind ourselves that it's more than an inconvenience for our most vulnerable citizens, and to learn what we can do to help. 7 p.m., free, 4705 Old Chapel Hill Rd., 919-489-6552, www.somethingyoucancallhome.com.Brian Howe
