The Ritzy will screen a new documentary on the London housing crisis on 5 June. Uprooted follows the last days of two residents on the Myatts Field North estate in Lambeth as it goes through a regeneration programme.
“In the middle of a rapidly changing London, a housing crisis rips through the capital, eating up communities and council estates along the way.
“Two ladies’ lives intertwine as they are forced to say goodbye to their memories,” says the award-winning director Ross Domoney.
The 3pm screening of the National Film and Television School production will be followed by a discussion with residents from Myatts Field North and a talk by Dr Stuart Hodkinson, lecturer in critical urban geography at Leeds University who specialises in “neoliberal urbanism”, gentrification, housing privatisation, and the private finance initiative.
