The Street (2019)Screening and Panel Discussion
3–6pm, Saturday 9 November 2019
We are delighted to present the soon-to-be released documentary film by Zed Nelson as part of we [ breathe ] in the space between Phase 2 — Pause weekend.
Film synopsis: As the glinting steel and mirror-glass skyscrapers of London’s financial hub edge ever closer, the area surrounding Hoxton Street has been transformed by ‘luxury’ redevelopments and sky-high property prices. This traditional East London street, less than a mile from the City of London, has become the last bastion of the areas disadvantaged – a concentration of the aged, poor and dispossessed. Following its inhabitants over a four-year period, Zed Nelson’s debut feature-length documentary charts the toxic collision of gentrification, austerity and the nation’s slide into Brexit.

The Street is released in cinema on 29 November.
