The Street

The Street

 
RETURN
As the glinting steel and mirror-glass skyscrapers of London’s financial district edge ever closer, the area surrounding Hoxton Street has been transformed by ‘luxury’ redevelopments and sky-high property prices. This East London street, less than a mile from the City of London, has become the last bastion of the area’s traditional communities. Following its residents over a four-year period, capturing the impact of gentrification, years of austerity and the eruption of Brexit on their daily lives, Zed Nelson’s feature-length debut is a tragicomic portrait of not just a street but a nation on the cusp of change. ★★★★ "Quietly enraging portrait of Hoxton lives on the brink." - Cath Clarke, The Guardian
