Details

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 is less than a mile from ‘The City’ – London’s historic financial district, home to the Stock Exchange and Bank of England – but has become the last bastion of the area’s disadvantaged, a concentration of the elderly, 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. A comic, tragic and deeply moving portrait of not just a street, but a nation on the cusp of enormous change.
