Well done! A wonderful film......

I'm glad I discovered this gem which tackles the issue of gentrification which rampant is virtually every major city in the US and Europe as well. "A Moving Image" connects the problems felt on both sides of the Atlantic. Although I live in the US, I know the streets of Brixton quite well as I have visited several times. This project is shot in the epicenter of Brixton which makes it all the more enjoyable for those in the know. We feel for the lead actress as she is, somewhat unfairly, told that she is part of the gentrification problem even though she was raised there. We also understand the plight of the characters in the film who represent and speak for "real" people who live in Brixton for whom the issue of gentrification is visceral. Many spent their formative years in the neighborhood but have been displaced by landlords who are only concerned with selling to the highest bidder. Beautifully shot and acted, A Moving Image" is a timely and heart felt project. I highly recommend it.
