Dispossession: The Great Social Housing Swindle
Dispossession: The Great Social Housing Swindle is a feature documentary directed by Paul Sng and narrated by Maxine Peake.
The film explores the catastrophic failures that have led to a chronic shortage of social housing in Britain.
The film focuses on 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 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.
Doors Open 7pm. Film starts 7.30pm. Discussion after the screening.
