Squat or Rot: A Squatter Highlights Reel

This rare collection of footage spotlights squatter struggles around the world and across time. See clips preserved directly from VHS and not available anywhere else. From homesteaders in New York City to rural squatters in Spain, this collection is one of a kind and this screening is guaranteed to be your only opportunity to see it. This is a benefit screening to raise seed money to launch SQ Distro, a distribution hub for media related to squatting, property, housing, and land struggles, including books, zines, DVDs, and other ephemera. The distro will be tabling at the event, too, so bring your cash!
