Landlords without faces. Apartments without tenants. A documentary exploring the new, un-livable city.
Housing prices are skyrocketing in cities worldwide. Incomes are not. The working and middle classes are getting pushed out of cities, while financial powerhouses use housing as a place to park money.
PUSH investigates why we can’t afford to live in our own cities anymore. We follow UN Special Rapporteur on Housing, Leilani Farha, on her quest to understand who’s getting squeezed, who’s getting rich and why housing has become one of today’s most pressing world issues.
A trailer for Fredrik Gertten’s new film PUSH is out now! The film will be released next year.
