As the pandemic has continued to force a global shut down – one timely aspect that has come to light is the state of affordable housing in metropolitan cities around the globe impacting millions who are trying to make ends meet. The new award-winning film PUSH from director FREDRIK GERTTEN brings the discussion front and center from Barcelona to Berlin to Toronto to New York to Los Angeles and San Francisco.  

PUSH sheds light on a new kind of faceless landlord, our increasingly unlivable cities and an escalating crisis that has an effect on us all. This is not gentrification, it’s a different kind of monster.

Leilani Farha

This compelling, urgent film follows the incredible LEILANI FARHA – the United Nations Rapporteur on Adequate Housing as she travels from city to city around the world calling attention to the global problem of unaffordable/inadequate housing and trying to help cities to find solutions. Through her travels, she strives to develop an understanding of who is being pushed out of the cities and why. In her words, “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”.
