NOT IN MY NEIGHBOURHOOD
Cape Town is no stranger to the effects of gentrification. Every single week the City’s magistrate court hears cases of eviction, many of them related to prospective high – end developments.
Not in My Neighbourhood, by award-winning filmmaker, Kurt Orderson, offers an insightful look into the lives of those who are struggling against the atrocities of Gentrification, Urban Renewal, Architectural Apartheid and Spatial Violence. He cohesively facilitates an international dialogue by exploring the parallels of the current urban environments in three seemingly disparate cities: São Paulo, Cape Town, and New York.
Not In My Neighbourhood portrays an “on the ground” approach, which evokes poignantly beautiful personal sentiments that are effortlessly juxtaposed with the courageous ability of the ordinary citizen mobilizing for their right to the city.
Kurt Orderson is an award winning independent filmmaker from Cape Town, South Africa. Orderson started his career after completing his film and television studies at Monash University, South Africa.
