Summary, etc.:
As global trends move towards neoliberal policies, New Zealand́s privatisation of state housing is radically transforming the countrýs social landscape. State housing is a system of public housing in New Zealand and for more than three generations low-income families in Auckland́s eastern suburb, Glen Innes have been renting state homes. Now the government is selling off a third of its housing stock. But when a Maori trust purchases the houses with a dream to help poor families into home-ownership, and the land is sold to a lucrative property development, a community is irrevocably altered and the vulnerable have the hardest fight. A PLACE TO CALL HOME is the unfolding story of a place and its people in a climate of state sponsored gentrification.
