The Divide tells the story of 7 people striving for a better life in modern day US and UK - where the top 0.1% owns as much wealth as the bottom 90%.
Inspired by Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett’s bestselling book 'The Spirit Level', Katharine Round's incisive and timely documentary reveals how every aspect of our lives is controlled by one factor: the size of the gap between rich and poor.
By weaving together real stories with news archive from 1979 to the present day, The Divide creates a lyrical, psychological and tragi-comic picture of how economic division creates social division. It serves as both a call to arms, and a powerful warning.
This isn’t based on real life. This is real life.
The screening on Tuesday 3 May at 18:30 will be followed by a Q&A with director Katharine Round and Faiza Shaheen, Director of Class Thinktank. Hosted by the film's executive producer Christopher Hird. SOLD OUT
