Squeezed Out of London

By J

A friend of ours has asked us to help promote a potential documentary. What follows is a slightly edited version of the original email:

Kash is a Hackney based production company that specialises in all forms of digital and short form content. We’ve been established for five years now and are eager to make interesting, relevant films that tell personal and honest stories.

I’m currently doing the preliminary research into a documentary idea about the affordability of housing in London and, in particular, cases where people have been offered financial assistance to leave their borough, moving to other London boroughs or even out of London entirely.

They’re looking to produce a short documentary for the Open City Docs festival, the theme of which is “Living in London.”

If anyone reading this is interested in speaking to Kash about this or has clients who might be interested, can they please contact Jamie McCormack at or on 020 7923 3309.


J is a barrister. He considers housing law to be the single greatest kind of law known to humankind and finds it very odd that so few people share this view.

    I am a tenant in London and had my share of unpleasant landlords. I am an accountant so no fool but renting has made me feel I am somehow inferior. Imagine if you have low income and lack of educated confidence or resources to deal with the market. Happy to contribute.

    Is this for general social media circulation (I’m thinking London Tenant Federation and Just Space FB and web pages as they have done a lot of work on this) ?

      I can’t see any reason not to share it widely. I imagine the documentary producers would appreciate as wide a range of potential case-studies as possible.
