The Radicals – Berlin’s housing crisis

The Radicals is a documentary by Portuguese director and journalist Balolas Carvalho, about the housing crisis in Berlin, which has generated a wave of protest in the city. As the film’s synopsis states, “Commodification of life, privatisation of land and rent speculation are some of the characteristics that mark Berlin today, after years of progressive leftist culture where it was relatively easy to explore alternative forms of living and do public space takeovers that enquired into collectivity.”
