As cities around the world catapult themselves into 'World Class' Global City status, it is important to ask ourselves at what cost? Not in my Neighbourhood provides an account of citizens on the frontline of the intersectional struggle against the gentrification in three so-called World Class Cities: Cape Town, S?o Paulo, and New York. The film explores the effects of various forms of spatial violence on the minds, spirits and social lives of citizens, following their daily struggles, trials and triumphant moments as they try to shape the cities they live in from the bottom up. Portraying its protagonists as active citizens who are fighting for their right to access the places they call home, the film provides a multifaceted account of the history of spatial violence, from Apartheid town planning to the rise of real estate mogul Donald Trump to the current bout of global gentrification. Making connections through inter-generational stories of people fighting for the right to their city, Not in my Neighbourhood takes the viewer on a journey into the lives of these characters and their personal experience of spatial violence.
