Architecture+Design Film Festival: Concrete Soldiers UK

Sun, Apr 22 / 4 pm
Directed by Nikita Woolfe
2017, UK, 63 min

This timely documentary exposes the epidemic of social cleansing currently raging in London, in the destructive guise of “regeneration”. Filmed just after the deadly Grenfell Tower fire, we witness the efforts of a young firm, Architects for Social Housing, as they meet with communities threatened by irresponsible development.

The Architecture+Design Film Festival (adff.ca) is co-presented by the Winnipeg Architecture Foundation and Cinematheque and is sponsored by Canada Council, Manitoba Association of Architects, University of Manitoba and Urban Idea.

Sponsored by City Planning Department of the University of Manitoba.

Reviews

Concrete Soldiers’ is a new documentary looking at an under-reported scandal in London and across the country — the social cleansing of council estates. Starved of funds by central government, councils and housing associations are entering into deals with private developers, instead of renovating existing estates, they are being demolished and rebuilt. The developers make huge profits, but existing tenants and leaseholders are squeezed out. The film encourages viewers to have hope and a belief that a fairer future is possible.
