DISPOSSESSION, THE GREAT SOCIAL HOUSING SWINDLE – FILM SCREENING AND Q&A

13.07.2017 19:30 / £7.00 / Unreserved seating

For some people, a housing crisis means not getting planning permission for a loft conversion. For

others it means, quite simply, losing their home. Dispossession: The Great Social Housing Swindle is a

feature documentary directed by Paul Sng (Sleaford Mods – Invisible Britain) and narrated by Maxine

Peake, exploring 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, and who believe that housing is a human right, not an

expensive luxury.
