the Grenfell Foundation.
the screening Grenfell Tower survivor and subject of the film Nicholas Burton
will be in conversation with writer and journalist Anna Minton.
This screening will also feature a filmed introduction by Push’s
director Fredrik Gertten and Leilani
Farha, former United Nations Special Rapporteur on Adequate Housing and subject
of the documentary.
Despite the fact that housing is a
fundamental human right and a precondition to a safe and healthy life, it's
becoming almost impossible to find an affordable place to live in cities across
the world. 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. The film follows Leilani Farha, the UN Special Rapporteur on Adequate
Housing, as she travels the globe, trying to understand who’s being pushed out
of the city and why.
