Latest documentary from director Charles Wilkinson
We are very grateful to Director Charles Wilkinson for allowing us to screen this film free of charge to our attendees!
Director Charles Wilkinson and producers Tina Schliessler and Kevin Eastwood (the team behind Haida Gwaii: On The Edge Of The World, and Oil Sands Karaoke) have assembled a group of residents deeply affected by the housing boom, as well as a number of key influencers in the city including: Mayor Gregor Robertson, Musqueam playwright Quelamia Sparrow, “Condo King” Bob Rennie, journalist Sandy Garossino, Senator Yuen Pau Woo, and scientist/broadcaster/activist David Suzuki.
Vancouver: No Fixed Address examines the common issues at work within the global housing bubble – arguments debated in many cities worldwide experiencing astronomical, often inexplicable increases in real estate values. The documentary delves beneath the headlines and rumours and comes to some unsettling conclusions about home – a place we thought we knew.
Vancouver: No Fixed Address was produced by Shore Films in association with Knowledge Network and Optic Nerve Films and was made with the participation of the Canada Media Fund. The film is the finale program on October 17th in BC’s Knowledge Network’s amazing Fall 2017 series ‘Globalization And Its Discontents’.
