Wed 18 September @ 8:20 pm - 11:00 pm

- £4.50 – £10.50

Landlords without faces, apartments without renters… Housing prices are skyrocketing in cities across the world, but incomes are not – pushing long-term residents out.

This is not gentrification, it is a relatively new economic reality: housing as a financial product, a place to park money. This incisive documentary follows Leilani Farha, UN Special Rapporteur on the right to adequate housing, as she meets with the residents, mayors, campaigners and economists fighting to reclaim the streets.

“Lively, approachable documentary […] should leave audiences feeling engaged, enraged and with plenty to discuss” – Screen Daily

BEYOND THE SCREEN:
We will be joined in conversation by Rhiannon Sims (Research and Policy Advisor at Oxfam Scotland), Lisa Borthwick (Senior Campaigns and Policy Manager, Shelter Scotland), and Scott Donohoe (Chair of UNISON’s Scottish Housing Issues and Welfare Group) to explore the factors fuelling the housing crisis in Scotland – and the many campaigns to address and challenge it.

Presented in association with Oxfam Scotland & UNISON Scotland.

Fredrik Gertten | Sweden | 2019 | English & Spanish with English subtitles
