I AM GENTRIFICATION - Confessions of a Scoundrel | documentary

Tuesday, 24th Nov 2020 | 19H

Film is a personal essay addressing architecture, habitation, space, density, xenophobia, gentrification and urban development. The film’s main arc spans the author’s diverse living environments, beginning with his childhood in a rich neighborhood to militant squats, shared flats and yuppie abodes, as well as his various dwellings in such metropolises as Tbilisi, São Paulo, Zurich and Mexico City.

At the end the author is a scoundrel: He becomes a fashionably old father and buys a huge flat in one of Zurich’s gentrified neighborhoods.

But the film ridicules as well: The rightwing populists that fear a lack of space because of immigrants. And the left that has abandoned modernity.
