This is a trailer of a soon to be released documentary about the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Right to Adequate Housing’s first official fact finding mission to the United States in the Fall of 2009. This trailer was produced for an event entitled “The Housing Rights Situation in the US” which took place at the UN Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, on March 5, 2010. Earlier that same day the Special Rapporteur presented the UN Human Rights Council her report based on her mission to the United States.
The video is being produced by NESRI, the Campaign to Restore National Housing Rights and Housing is a Human Right. It was shot by volunteer videographers, audio recorders and photographers from around the United States and is being edited by a team of volunteer video editors based in New York City.
