CLASS DIVIDE

The thought-provoking documentary Class Divide is a timely look at the widening divide between the “haves” and “have nots.” Young people on both sides of the gap offer unique and honest insights that challenge common perceptions about inequality today. Director Marc Levin explores the effects of hyper-gentrification and rising economic disparity in New York's Chelsea neighborhood, which can be seen as a microcosm of the socioeconomic imbalances across the country, and the world. The film bears witness to the profound effects of gentrification and stagnant class mobility on young people who share a West Chelsea community, yet live in very different worlds, as they try to navigate this rapidly changing landscape.
