Film: Forced Out
2017, Dir. Blue Lucine, 80mins.
On prized harbourside land in Sydney, a battle is raging. An entire precinct of public housing in one of Australia’s most historic areas is being sold off by the NSW state government. Tenants are being pushed out of homes they have lived in for years. Some are resigned to leave, but many say ‘no surrender!’ – they will not back down and believe they can win the fight to remain in Millers Point and the Sirius Building at Dawes Point.
Forced Out is an intimate character-driven documentary, taking you behind the headlines of the sale.
