For some people, a housing crisis means not getting planning permission for a loft conversion. For others it means, quite simply, losing their home.

Dispossession: The Great Social Housing Swindle is a feature documentary from Velvet Joy Productions, directed by Paul Sng (Sleaford Mods – Invisible Britain) and narrated by Maxine Peake (The Falling, The Theory of Everything), exploring the catastrophic failures that have led to a chronic shortage of social housing in Britain.

Dispossession investigates how the state is working with the private sector to demolish estates to build on the land they stand on, making properties that are unaffordable to the majority of people in the UK.
