The Divide (12A)
Dir: Katharine Round, UK/US, 2016, 77 mins
Inspired by the critically-acclaimed, best-selling book The Spirit Level, this new documentary tells the story of 7 individuals striving for a better life in modern day US and UK – where the top 0.1% owns as much wealth as the bottom 90%. By plotting these tales together, we uncover how every aspect of our lives is controlled by one factor: the size of the gap between rich and poor. The Divide creates a lyrical, psychological and tragi-comic picture of how economic division creates social division. It serves as both a call to arms, and a powerful warning.
