Synopsis

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.
