PUSH (12A) + ScreenTalk with director Fredrik Gertten
PUSH examines one of today’s most urgent issues – the epic transformation of cities into financial instruments – to reveal with devastating clarity the shadowy operations and forces that threaten the very foundations of urban life.
Following Leilani Farha, the UN Special Rapporteur on Adequate Housing, and featuring Saskia Sassen and Joseph Stiglitz, the film demonstrates how and why house prices are rocketing, whilst wages are stagnating; a problem with symptoms known by so many, but true causes by so few.
After the screening, director Fredrik Gertten will be in conversation with Anna Minton.
