Why can’t we afford to live in our own cities anymore?


Housing prices are skyrocketing in cities around the world. Incomes are not.

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

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.

Push was released in the UK with a combined impact campaign generating conversations at a regional level about the film’s subject matter.
