The Street

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, less than a mile from the City Of London, has becomes the last bastion of the areas disadvantaged - a concentration of the aged, 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.
