Film Synopsis: Push

Director: Fredrik Gertten | Countries of production: Sweden | Year: 2019 | Length: 92 min
Language: English, Spanish with English subtitles | Age: 12+ years

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, an investment of choice for corporate finance, a place to park money. More and more cities are servicing the wishes of global capital over the needs of most of their population. So how do we push back and reclaim the streets?

In New York, London, Barcelona, Seoul and Valparaiso, this incisive documentary by investigative filmmaker Fredrik Gertten (Bikes vs Cars, TOAFF15) follows Leilani Farha, UN Special Rapporteur on the right to adequate housing, as she meets with residents, mayors, campaigners and economists to reclaim housing as a human right, not a commodity.



Beyond the Screen

Join us in conversation after the film as we explore the factors fuelling the housing crisis in Scotland – and the many campaigns to address and challenge it – with guests including Kenneth Watt from Oxfam Scotland and Mark Thomson from Shelter Scotland.

Presented as part of TOAFF19 Aberdeen.
