NOT IN MY NEIGHBOURHOOD
directed by Kurt Orderson
Runtime: 95 mins [ watch trailer ]
As cities around the world catapult themselves into â€˜World Classâ€™, Global City status, we have to ask ourselves, â€œat what costâ€? Not in my Neigbourhood gives the account of citizens on the frontline of the struggle against the intersectional nature of Gentrification from three seemingly World Class Cities.
The film explores the effects of various forms of spatial violence on the spirit and social-psyche of citizens. It follows their daily struggles, trials and triumphant moments, as they try to shape the cities they live in, from the bottom up! Portraying our characters as active citizens, fighting for their right to the city, the film acts as a portrait of stories telling the history of spatial violence within the background of Architectural Apartheid to Gentrification.
