About PUSH

In Vancouver for years we have debated if we are in a housing bubble. But there is another kind of bubble, one that allows us to assume this is a unique experience. In fact citizens in cities across North and South America, Europe, and Asia have been priced out of their homes as global investment companies buy up buildings as assets with little or no regard for their occupants.

 

The film follows Leilani Farha, the UN Special Rapporteur on Adequate Housing, as she’s travelling the globe, trying to understand who’s being pushed out of the city and why. “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. 

 

Join us to watch this investigative documentary by Director Fredrik Gertten that follows Leilani as she explores the housing bubble from a global perspective.

 

Doors open at 1:30 pm. Film starts at 2:00 pm.

Talk begins at 3:45 pm.
