Dispossession: The Great Social Housing Swindle (Film)
Monday 6th November
Doors 19.00 // Starts 19.30
This screening is being organised by Fair Housing for Frome, a community group running a campaign during 2017 to raise awareness of, and seek solutions to, the housing crisis in Frome.
The screening will be followed by a discussion.
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.
