Reza Shirazi is in Cluj to show and discuss his documentary film “Never Surrender”. The film narrates the community’s fight for environmental justice in Bayvview-Hunters Point neighborhood, San Francisco. It is of great interest to academics and activists, at the crossroads of environmental and housing matters.
The film documents the conflict between people and government over the safety of the Hunters Point Shipyard, a former military base contaminated during the Second World War and beyond, now under redevelopment work. It celebrates the power of people’s fight.
Reza is an urbanist, researcher, and Reader in Sustainable Urban Development at the School of Built Environment, Oxford Brookes University.
