Some of the businesses on Hoxton Street have been around for over a hundred years. Recent times have witnessed an explosion of property development. The locals feel the exclusion of being priced out, and wonder who's to blame.
Some of the businesses on Hoxton Street have been around for over a hundred years. But recent times have witnessed an explosion of coffee shops, art spaces and property development. Sound familiar? The locals feel the exclusion of being priced out, and wonder who's to blame, while Cameron's EU referendum looms in the background. Xenophobia is tangible; and with a new working space offering colourful ball-pit baths, the disconnect between the new creatives and the local community seems irreconcilable. From 82-year-old Colleen, to the couple who met as teens working in the pie shop they now run, everyone is feeling a storm coming.Written by
As good a picture of England pre and post Brexit as I've seen in doc form (or scripted, for that matter) - unvarnished. Added bonus is the film finds time to introduce us to some fascinating characters, whether you agree with them or not. Film-maker deserves kudos for getting so many people, of all stripes, to speak so frankly.
