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.
The  film  follows  Leilani  Farha,  the  UN  Special  Rapporteur  on Adequate Housing, as she’s traveling the globe, trying to understand who’s being pushed out of the city and why. “I believe there’s a huge difference between housing as a commodity and gold as a commodity. Gold is not a human right, housing is,” says Leilani.

“Ciné-ONU Vienna” is part of a Europe-wide initiative of regular film screenings of UN related topics followed by podium  discussions  with  invited  guests  who  were  part  of  the  film  making  process  or  are  experts  in  the  topic covered by the film. The United Nations Information Service (UNIS) Vienna is honoured to have “Ciné-ONU Vienna” partner withthis human world (THW) film festival and Topkino for the regular film screenings in Vienna.
