There Goes Our Neighbourhood Screening
Join us at 107 Redfern for a screening of There Goes Our Neighbourhood (Dir. Claire Lewis, 2018) and fabulous food provided by Two Good Co.
When politicians and property developers threaten to knock down Sydney's Waterloo and force public housing battlers to the edges of the city, the locals fight back: their war cry an ambitious artwork, the making of which will both unite and divide.
This compelling, thought-provoking documentary explores one of the most pressing issues facing our society today: the issue of public housing and the ever-increasing rift between the haves and the have nots. All around the world, a wave of gentrification is reimagining inner-city neighbourhoods as governments sell off public housing land in up-and-coming neighbourhoods to profit-driven property developers. The ramifications are enormous: many public housing residents face uncertainty about their future and the cultural ethos of the area shifts dramatically, replacing the sense of community among the marginalised with a very different sense of class, material wealth and gentrification.
