Community Collaboration

Presented with inCOMMON Community Development

Join us for a post-screening panel discussion on urban redevelopment, gentrification, and housing insecurity from a wide-range of perspectives, including policy, advocacy, and affected communities.

With the participation of Andrea Davis (neighborhood leader in Walnut Hill), Dr. Erin Feichtinger (Women's Fund), and Senator Tony Vargas (7th District of NE).


Film Information

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.

From award-winning director Fredrik Gertten, PUSH 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.
