Our Chance to View a Film We Should All See About the Housing Crisis Unfolding Here and Around the World

‘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.’
