The neglect, demolition and regeneration of council estates in London, Glasgow and Nottingham is the focus of the documentary “Dispossession: the great social housing swindle,” directed by Paul Sng and narrated by the actress Maxine Peake.
The film examines the most human aspect of the housing crisis through interviews with residents, political representatives and experts in housing and accommodation.
The director denounces the state of oblivion of social housing values, which represented 42% of the dwellings in the UK in 1970 and are only 8% nowadays. With “Dispossession”, Paul Sng aims to raise awareness of this situation.
