The documentary 'I Am Gentrification: Confessions of a Scoundrel' is the intriguing life story of the Swiss journalist Thomas Haemmerli. In the documentary, the complexity of gentrification is investigated. Is Thomas himself the cause of this phenomenon, or does he merely benefit from it? We follow Haemmerli's journey, from his free spirit fighting the ruling class, to becoming a father of two children, living in a luxury apartment in Zurich and being one of the digital nomads for whom geography hardly plays a role anymore. With a good dose of self-mockery, Haemmerli confronts us with present-day gentrification, which spares nothing or nobody.
