A MOVING IMAGE + Q&A (15) BOOK TICKETS
Are you part of the problem or part of the solution? When the ‘problem’ is ‘gentrification’, responses range from righteous anger (‘Peckham doesn’t need another Costa Fucking Coffee!’) to writer-director Shola Amoo’s award-winning mix of fact and fiction in which documentary, animation and archive footage succinctly merge.
Artist Nina (Tanya Fear) returns home to South London’s rapidly gentrifying Brixton, where communities are slowly being destroyed. Her answer to the changing face of one of London’s most richly diverse areas – an art project – inevitably leads to suggestions that Nina herself is actually part of the problem.
We are delighted to welcome the film’s writer-director Shola Amoo and producer Rienkje Attoh for a post-screening Q&A chaired by Rio Director Oliver Meek
