Onko asumiseen enää varaa?

Housing prices are skyrocketing in cities around the world. Incomes are not. PUSH sheds light on a new kind offaceless landlord, our increasingly unliveable cities and an escalating crisis that has an effect on us all. This is notgentrification, it’s a different kind of monster.The film follows Leilani Farha, the UN Special Rapporteur on AdequateHousing, as she’s travelling the globe, trying to understand who’s being pushed out of the city and why. “I believethere’s a huge difference between housing as a commodity and gold as a commodity. Gold is not a human right,housing is,”says Leilani.
