Shelter: a Squatumentary
presented by Hannah Dobbz

In economically turbulent times, rent and home-ownership have become unaffordable at best and impossible at worst. Thus, people all over the world continue a long tradition of reclaiming this basic human right by squatting. Shelter: A Squatumentary is a documentary film that explores the squatting movement in the San Francisco Bay Area from 2004 to 2007. The film follows three examples of the struggle for housing in one of the most expensive housing markets in America. Hellarity House, Banana House, and Power Machine are stories of squatters who have found one tentative solution to the ongoing housing crisis.
