The “Other” City | PUSH

The "Other" City - A film series about urban issues. October screening is Push.

PUSH is a new documentary from award-winning director Fredrik Gertten, investigating why we can’t afford to live in our own cities anymore. Housing is a fundamental human right, a precondition to a safe and healthy life. But in cities all around the world, having a place to live is becoming more and more difficult. Who are the players and what are the factors that make housing one of today’s most pressing world issues?

The “Other” City is a series of documentary film screenings about cities and urbanization, exploring the question “who is the city built for and why”? The series aims to bring together our School of Cities community to build relationships, spark collaboration, and provide a platform for engagement in an intimate and informal environment. An expert host introduces the film and moderates a discussion with the audience after the screening.
