BHS Premiere of ‘Dispossession: The Great Social Housing Swindle’ (2017) by Paul Sng
In 2017 housing rose to the top of the British political agenda for the first time in a generation. But despite the media spotlight, few stories examined the catastrophic long-term failures that resulted in a chronic shortage of social housing in the United Kingdom.
Dispossession: The Great Social Housing Swindle explores the agenda behind the neglect, demolition and regeneration of council estates in the U.K. over the past thirty years. The film reveals how individuals and communities are fighting against the state and private developers, as they try to save their homes from demolition, while investigating the decisions that turned a crisis into a tragedy.
Dispossession is the story of people who know that housing is not an expensive luxury, but a fundamental human right.
Any profits from the Black Market and Film Festival will go towards funding future events as we are SELF FUNDED and strive to be self-sufficient.
Our economic empowerment and liberation is OUR RESPONSIBILITY.
