Landlords without faces. Apartments without renters. A documentary exploring the new, unlivable city. Housing prices are skyrocketing in cities worldwide, incomes are not. The working and middle classes are getting pushed out, while financial powerhouses use housing as a place to park money.

We follow UN Special Rapporteur on Housing, Leilani Farha, on her quest to understand who's getting squeezed, who's getting rich and why housing has become one of today's most pressing world issues. This is not gentrification, it's a different kind of monster. 

Featuring interviews with Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz, sociologist Saskia Sassen, and author Roberto Saviano.

"Timely. Urgently asks who are cities for, who's going to live in them, and how will they function when only the rich are there?"
