House prices are skyrocketing in cities around the world. Incomes aren’t keeping up. Families are pushed out of their homes and not even nurses, policemen or firefighters can afford to live in the cities they are supposed to protect. Meanwhile, new buildings are left vacant, used as a place to house money instead of people.
PUSH is an upcoming documentary from award-winning documentary filmmaker Fredrik Gertten. The film follows Leilani Farha, UN Special Rapporteur on Housing, on her quest to understand, why we’re getting priced out of our cities and who’s getting rich in the process. From Barcelona to Toronto, PUSH sheds light on our increasingly unlivable cities, a new kind of faceless landlord and a crisis that’s about to affect us all.
We are soon launching a Kickstarter campaign to collect funds to finish the film and get it out to screens everywhere. Want to hear more? Visit the film’s website
