"I was moved by the stories inUNZIPPEDand how the film humanizes the lived experiences of several families struggling with America's own affordable housing crisis. I am hopeful this documentary will help catalyze debate and action on how to better protect the most vulnerable in society."
— Lucy Liu, actress
Increasingly in cities across the United States and throughout the world, it is becoming more and more difficult to afford housing. UNZIPPED: An Autopsy of American Inequality investigates the myriad causes for the growing epidemics of houselessness and unaffordability, using Venice, California as a microcosm for these widespread phenomenon. Speaking with politicians, activists, and residents of a community where these issues are at the heart of daily life, UNZIPPED reveals how decisions have accumulated over the years that bring us to this point, so that we may forge new paths towards a society with housing for all.
