GIVE US SPACE is a feature documentary about the complexity of the housing crisis in London. Filmed over 2013-2014, the film focuses on housing as a human need and Human Right, interviewing people and following empowering grass-roots movements, and housing struggles, while recognizing the vital importance of resistance; we followed issues around social housing and gentrification, squatting and housing co-operatives as essential indicators of alternatives and community building strategies.
After a season of self-organized community events to show the film and bring people together in person, the film is now online!
