Join us at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, June 24, 2014 at the Flying Pigeon LA bike shop for a screening of the film Real Estate For Ransom and a Q&A with Australian director Karl Fitzgerald.

Is the nefarious hipster to blame for skyrocketing housing prices and rents in Highland Park? Or are there other, less fashionable, causes?

Many of us bemoan the displacement of communities due to the rapidly rising rents and home prices in our neighborhood. What is behind all of this and what can we do about it?

Curbed LA has covered the affordable housing crisis for months, if you’re looking for some background info with up to date data.

Refreshments? They will be served. Minds? Will (hopefully) be blown.

There is a Facebook Event for this screening.

Any questions? Show up and have ’em answered! Or email info@flyingpigeon-la.com
