What effects does gentrification have on the civilian population? What could an international struggle for housing look like? The documentary Ekümenopolis uses real-estate speculation in Istanbul to sketch a picture of a metropolis that can barely catch its breath. After the screening, director Imre Azem and Berlin-based film-maker Matthias Coers, director of Mietrebellen (Rent Rebels), discuss the parallels between Berlin and Istanbul.
