Most documentary treatments of gentrification lament its consequences without examining the collusion between city adminsitration and affordable housing non profits. Non profits are funded to create affordable housing, but the city only offers it through cross subsidies that bring more market-rate housing than affordable housing, gentrifying the neighborhood and displacing community.
