Urban Lab Films presents: The Street

Dir: Zed Nelson
United Kingdom / 2019 / 94mins

With the skyscrapers of the City glinting close by, the area surrounding Hoxton Street has been transformed by luxury developments and sky-high property prices.

As media start-ups, hipster cafés and corporate property developers move in, the traditional working-class inhabitants of this East London street feel a deepening social divide.

Set against the backdrop of rapid gentrification, years of austerity and the eruption of Brexit, Zed Nelson’s four-year epic delivers a comic, tragic and deeply moving portrait of not just a street, but a nation on the cusp of enormous change.

 

This screening is presented by Urban Lab Films, who will host a conversation after the screening between director Zed Nelson, writer and journalist Anna Minton, and UCL Urban Laboratory’s Jordan Rowe.
