Shot just before the start of the economic crisis in 2008, EVERYTHING MUST GO captures the final days of an Oslo shoe store that had been in business since 1921. A film on gentrification, it reflects the fate of Oslo, where far too many independent businesses have been replaced by a chain store or real estate agency. This has sadly become an all-too-common occurrence in recent years in cities the world over, all of which lose a piece of their soul as a result.
