Special Screening of the film the Push with follow up Q&A with Leilani Farha. Watch the trailer

” A gripping new film about how global finance is fueling the housing crisis and making cities unaffordable to live in”

Landlords without faces, apartments without tenants, Push explores the new, un-livable city.

With housing now such a lucrative financial investment, how do we push back and reclaim the streets?

In November of 2016, award-winning filmmaker Fredrik Gertten reached out to Leilani Farha, then UN Special Rapporteur on the right to housing. Three years later, documentary Push has its premiere in Copenhagen.

Push follows Leilani as she investigates why cities around the world are becoming so unaffordable. Housing is a fundamental human right, a precondition to a safe and healthy life. But in cities all around the world, having a place to live is becoming more and more difficult.
