Synopsis

Fresh Paint on the Walls is a satirical take on the private rental market, gentrification, and the increasing difficulty of living in the neoliberal city. The voice-over narration theorises on the motives behind the capitalist and patriarchal landlord’s widespread use of magnolia-coloured paint in rental accommodation. By reviewing the current rental market through the landlord’s absurd habits, Fresh Paint on the Walls evinces the reality of the situation where housing is seen as a commodity rather than a social need.
