Gentrification – Don’t Touch My Cortado!
Aug 28, 2020 Season 1 Episode 9
WG Film

The Filmmaker and The Advocate explore whether it’s actually gentrification that’s ruining our neighbourhoods or something else. Fredrik fiercely defends the rise of cortados (and bike lanes!) in neighbourhoods across the world and Leilani discusses the failures of New York’s High Line. With inspiration from clips of the always brilliant Prof. Saskia Sassen in the film PUSH, and 17-year-old Londoner, Hope Bhargava, the co-hosts agree that whatever you call it, what’s really driving people out of their homes and cities is that housing is being used as a financial instrument – a place to hide, park, and extract money!
