Push
  • Year2019
  • Duration92 min

Housing prices are skyrocketing in cities around the world. Incomes are not. PUSH sheds light on a new kind of faceless landlord, our increasingly unliveable cities and an escalating crisis that has an effect on us all. This is not gentrification, it’s a different kind of monster. “I believe there’s a huge difference between housing as a commodity and gold as a commodity. Gold is not a human right, housing is”, says Leilani Farha, the UN Special Rapporteur on Adequate Housing. The film follows her as she travels around the world, trying to understand who’s being pushed out of the city and why.
