Join us for a screening of The Street, Zed Nelson’s debut feature: a film about love and loss, and a community unravelled by gentrification.
Hoxton Street’s close-knit working-class community has absorbed waves of immigrants since the 1950’s. But as traditional industry has withered, the latest influx of young urban hipsters followed closely by expensive restaurants, digital media start-ups and corporate property developers has brought with it a deepening social and financial divide. Set against rapid gentrification, years of austerity and the eruption of Brexit, Zed Nelson’s feature-length debut is a comic, tragic and deeply moving portrait of not just a street, but a nation on the cusp of enormous change. The screening will be followed by an in conversation with filmmaker Zed Nelson, hosted by Museum of London curator Alex Werner.
