Class Divide

CLASS DIVIDE highlights the recent effects of hyper-gentrification in New York City’s West Chelsea neighborhood, focusing on an intersection where an elite private school sits directly across the street from public housing projects. The final film in a trilogy about economic forces affecting ordinary people, this moving chronicle bears witness to the effects of rising inequality and stagnant class mobility.
