Class Divide

Wednesday, April 13 - Tuesday, April 19, 2016

“Outstanding… a close-up look at the radical gentrification of Manhattan’s once grungy West Chelsea.” – Film Journal

A look at NYC’s gentrification and growing inequality in a microcosm, CLASS DIVIDE explores two distinct worlds that share the same Chelsea intersection–Tenth Avenue and 26th Street. On one side of the avenue, the Chelsea-Elliot Houses have provided low-income public housing to residents for decades. Their neighbor across Tenth since 2012 is Avenues: The World School, a costly private academy. What happens when kids from both of these worlds attempt to cross the divide?
