Houses For All

Houses For All

Shortly after the collapse of the housing bubble in the U.S., Spain suffered the same fate. Till then the high demand, combined with a careless credit policy of the banks, led to the realization of gigantic settlements. Now there are newly built holiday resorts that have never seen one tourist, half-finished skyscrapers that slowly expire and new roads that lead to nowhere. A total of 3.6 million homes stand empty in Spain. CASAS PARA TODOS is a film about the visible relicts of the financial crisis and raises the question what's left after promising plans and big hopes.
