worldwide thanks not to gentrification but to the monster of property speculation a powerful new documentary examines why we can't afford to live in our cities anymore. and in a new weekly look at european wedding customs we're on location in ireland when wayne and. german directors. had his international break through with the art house heist thriller victoria and that film was impressive for its radical single take approach which is why his latest offering might seem a tad conventional by comparison rhodes as the name implies it is a coming of age road movie but it's angle on the migration crisis drives home a powerful message that the same road might lead to different destinations but most important is the journey itself. don that you're driving slow 35 or something pulling. almost stop because you don't know sebastian shippers new film roads is
7:46 pm
a coming of age road as he was with the difference between 2 very different 18 year old boys meet in morocco william is from the congo he's playing to europe to search for his lost brother. rich kid guillen on vacation has stolen his stepfather's caravan and is heading to france to visit his birth father. so now smile can be biden he has compared to any and when they 1st meet it's like 2 aliens greeting each other for william from the congo gillan is an absolute extraterrestrial he can't understand how he has this car which he obviously doesn't know how to drive it's all very strange for them at the beginning as a family. much together to set off on what they themselves call a crazy stupid risky adventure this is a refugee story but one told with a glimmer of hope friendship not trauma so at the center of the tale near the end the film becomes more documentary as the pair try to sneak over to britain by
7:47 pm
a color. they couldn't come to see but in prison. ship or work with real refugee helpers to be whose work he admires having so many problems as police right now. there is being pain and tragedy but there are also these committed people people who say if you're hungry we'll give you food. i mean the amount of invest. the european road seen through the eyes of 2 boys is a cold and ruthless one the grown ups shipper says have long lost sight of their values and decency. that's a feeling that's very widespread obviously amongst today's youth and with good reasons my views moving and my movie that's got rough kind of as doing in the studio scott this isn't the 1st film that we've seen soon to look at the migration crisis in
7:48 pm
a drama what does this one add to the story yeah i mean you're right the vigil of quite a few since the immigration crisis started a number of years ago that a lot of filmmakers who looked at the issue. what she has done a bit differently is he's combined the story that maybe we know from the news of the migration crisis with a very personal sort of coming of age tale and the focus is very much on these 2 young boys and their sort of. journey of self discovery really and that i think is quite interesting is it does put more of a human face on on the headlines that we're used to seeing and so does that work for you yeah it does and it's a good film and it's a solid movie the very important subject i just persons expecting a bit more something more radical well i'm not disappointed but shipper his last film the tory i was so impressed by this is a one shot drama said the berlin night night live famously he did the whole thing without a single edit. that was so radically different and it was such an impressive. presentation of directorial talent i was really hoping for this story he would go
7:49 pm
for something as radical rhodes is an incredibly good well made movie it's a very important subject as i said the acting is very good very strong but it definitely is around ok so you've got another film that you brought for us the documentary this time the duck which is called push and it's also a very important social topic that's in the news a lot here and around the world the issue of rising housing prices and rising rents and how people are being driven being pushed out of their homes and out of the cities so let's have a couple of look at a couple of excerpts from the documentary push. it's a global problem rents are soaring in cities worldwide but housing is a human right. fighting for that right is lani haha the united nations special rapporteur on adequate housing swedish director for the followed over 2 years
7:50 pm
documentary push the result is a picture of a global social catastrophe over the past 10 years real estate prices have exploded but salaries have stagnated climes people are priced out of their homes and forced out of cities. poor people who are really struggling like never before but then you also have the middle class i'm able to afford to live in cities and provide services that are necessary for a city. in london's notting hill district it soon becomes clear that the business of real estate has changed radically if you could get one of these it would be 30 or 40000000. and nobody lives here nothing is happening there was news agents there were pubs there were a couple of restaurants i could stand in the middle of the street with and car parking spaces all around me and no traffic coming this place is now a bit of
7:51 pm
a dead zone we're very it's a little indication of who the owners are. each red dot on this london map is a property owned by a foreign company. 80 percent of them stand empty. when i hear people today saying it's gentrification wondering action an ironic reaction is if. real estate is no longer about living space. has the scupper that apartments have now become a speculative commodity on the global financial market for these sort of investors renters are more trouble than they're worth. housing is being treated like a commodity. like gold but gold is not a human right housing however is a human right and you will find it in human rights law and that's the difference so you can trade housing michael. the market value of all real estate is now more than
7:52 pm
double that of the gross national product of the entire world john investment companies like blackstone have bought up tens of thousands of properties worldwide but people are fighting back in berlin politicians have begun to react buying back thousands of apartments for use of social housing and there's even talk of evicting owners and seizing property for the people. who own those dark investigative pieces scott this is obviously such a huge social issue can films like this actually help to shape the debate i hope so i mean the important thing close this is an issue that's been talked about a lot but having a film like this where it really lays out what the issues are and shows quite clearly it's not a problem gentrification you know people coming in hip hip stars coming in and open big building big cafes and driving up prices but that it's a change in the way financial investors are working with their traditionally a property truck it's a structural issue and there's also provide solutions about how you can go about it
7:53 pm
particulars idea that housing is a human right western countries with western countries have it as one of their human rights that they have to defend that's a way of legally challenging what's happening and i think a film like this is coming out of just the right time to to address the situation particularly because politicians now will wire start to pay attention to who obviously a bit late for some people is there is there hope in this scenario there is because there are solutions that. present legal solutions but also solutions going after investors who invest in these type of properties and say what are you doing look at the social damage that you're doing so the film is quite dark but it has a lot of hope at the end and driving home the message of housing is a fundamental human right so that's roads just opened in germany last week push hits theaters next week scott rush for thanks very much for bringing us that back story. something old something new something borrowed something blue that's the traditional checklist for an english bride in france she might auction off her garter to start a nest egg and in germany they're still very fond of smashing crockery well here on
