The Street

Dir: Zed Nelson

United Kingdom (UK)


94 mins


Zed Nelson is an internationally renowned photographer whose work has been recognised by numerous awards and exhibited in solo shows word-wide. Now we see him in a producer director role in his first debut feature-length documentary, The Street: a film about love and loss, and a community unravelled by gentrification.

As the glinting steel and mirror-glass skyscrapers of London’s financial hub edge ever closer, the area surrounding Hoxton Street has been transformed by ‘luxury’ redevelopments and sky-high property prices. This traditional East London street, less than a mile from the City of London, has become the last bastion of the areas disadvantaged – a concentration of the aged, poor and dispossessed. Following its inhabitants over a four-year period, Zed Nelson’s debut feature-length documentary charts the toxic collision of gentrification, austerity and the nation’s slide into Brexit.
