NOT IN MY NEIGHBOURHOOD

A FILM BY KURT ORDERSON
"From colonization to gentrification, the intergenerational stories of the ordinary citizens fighting for the right to their cities in Cape Town, New York and São Paulo" 
 

“Engrossing and most impactful. We witness people, everyday people, occupy abandoned buildings to provide shelter for families and force government recognition in Brazil. In South Africa, folks show up to official conferences and demand straight responses. And, of course, Brooklynites are out and about, filming cops and being foot soldiers. The editing is seamless, the photography has a “captured in the moment” in your face feel, forcing one to look directly at immorality and state-sponsored terror – which is what denying affordable housing and property is.”

Bill Arceneaux,
