Post Conference Film: Dispossession - The Great Social Housing Swindle

May 14 2018 17:15 - 19:00

Grand Teatret, Mikkel Bryggers Gade 8, 1460 København


A documentary that sheds light on England’s broken social housing system. En dokumentar som kaster lys over Englands kroniske mangel på almene boliger.

The feature documentary Dispossession, directed by Paul Sng (Sleaford Mods - Invisible Britain) and narrated by Maxine Peake, explores the catastrophic failures that have led to a chronic shortage of social housing in Britain. Paul Sng brings into light the neglect, demolition and regeneration of council estates across the UK and investigates how the state works with the private sector to demolish council estates in order to build on the land they stand on, making properties that are unaffordable to the majority of people.

Dispossession is the story of people fighting for their communities, of people who know the difference between a house and a home, and who believe that housing is a human right, not an expensive luxury.

Dispossession, en dokumentar instrueret af Paul Sng (Sleaford Mods - Invisible Britain) og fortalt af Maxine Peake, Undersøger de katastrofale fejl, der har ført til en kronisk mangel på sociale boliger i Storbritannien. Paul Sng fremhæver forsømmelsen, nedrivningen og genopretningen af almene boliger i hele Storbritannien og undersøger, hvordan staten arbejder med den private sektor for at nedrive almene boliger og bygger nye boliger som kun er for de få.

Dispossession er historien om folk, der kæmper for deres lokalsamfund, en skildring af folk, der kender forskellen mellem et hus og et hjem, og som mener, at boliger er en menneskerettighed, ikke en dyr luksus.
