Join Ikon Youth Programme (IYP) for a special screening of Dispossession: The Great Social Housing Swindle (2017), narrated by Maxine Peake. Dispossession explores the agenda behind the neglect, demolition and regeneration of council estates in the UK over the past thirty years. The film reveals how individuals and communities are fighting against the state and private developers, as they try to save their homes from demolition. The screening is followed by a discussion with artist Mahtab Hussain.

Also available on DVD and On Demand. For more information on this film and how you can watch it: dispossessionfilm.com
