Capital Celluloid 2015 - Day 268: Fri Sep 25

The Divide (Round, 2015): Art House Cinema, Crouch End, 6.30pm


Here is the Art House Cinema introduction:
An exclusive pre-release screening as part of the 2015 London Labour Film Festival, this event includes a Q&A, live on the ArtHouse stage, with award winning journalist Owen Jones, director Katherine Round and General Secretary of PCS Chris Baugh.

Inspired by the best-selling book The Spirit Level, Round’s accomplished debut feature illustrates a more personal account of how inequality shapes our societies. From the fast-food employee struggling to earn a living to the Wall Street psychologist who aspires to live the affluent life of the damaged white collar workers he attends to. Personal testimony from those on both ends of the income spectrum helps to successfully articulate how the rising gap between the rich and poor negatively impacts people from the bottom to the top of society.
