All over the world, rents are skyrocketing in cities. Income is not doing that. Long-term tenants are being forced out of their homes. Not even nurses, police officers and firefighters can afford to live in the cities where they are supposed to help. PUSH sheds light on a new kind of anonymous homeowner, on our increasingly uninhabitable cities and an escalating crisis that affects us all. This is no longer gentrification, it is a new kind of monster: housing as capital, a place to invest money. The film follows Leilani Farha, the UN Special Rapporteur on Adequate Housing, as she travels the world to find out who is being pushed out of the city and why. "I think there is a huge difference between housing as a commodity and gold as a commodity. Gold is not a human right, housing is," says Leilani. PUSH, the new documentary film by award-winning director Fredrik Gertten (BIKES VS CARS), examines why we can no longer afford to live in our cities. Housing is a fundamental human right, a prerequisite for a safe and good life. But in cities around the world, the chances of finding affordable housing are becoming more and more difficult. Who are the actors and what are the factors that make housing one of the biggest problems of our time?
