Hot Docs Review: Push (Fredrik Gertten, 2019)


Push_1

An insightful film about the global housing crisis in urban centers, Push follows UN Rapporteur Lailani Farza across the globe as she investigates the continued demise of affordable city housing. For some reason I thought this film was going to be just about Toronto, but I was glad to see the scope of this film expanded.

Through conversations with experts, politicians and just plain regular people, we come to learn that the issue is far more complex than we realize and that this crisis will be far more difficult to untangle.

An eye opener of a film. Check it out.

Screenings:
Wed, May 1, 1:00 PM @ TIFF Bell Lightbox 1
Sat, May 4, 9:15 PM @ Hart House Theatre
