Housing prices are skyrocketing in cities worldwide. Long-time residents are pushed out. Not even nurses, police, and firefighters can afford to live in the cities they are supposed to protect. This is not gentrification, it’s a different kind of monster; like gold, accommodation has become a financial asset, a place to park money. In this groundbreaking film, award-winning director Fredrik Gertten follows Leilani Farha, newly appointed UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Housing, as she pushes to uncover the players and factors making housing one of today’s most pressing global issues.
