UK film premier - 'The Divide: what happens when the rich get richer'
The Divide tells the story of 7 individuals striving for a better life in modern day US and UK - where the top 0.1% owns as much wealth as the bottom 90%. By plotting these tales together, we uncover how every aspect of our lives is controlled by one factor: the size of the gap between rich and poor.
The premier is at the West End Picture House on Monday 11th April at 6.30 p.m. Tickets are still available here. After the screening Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett, authors of The Spirit Level, will be in discussion with the films director, Katherine Round.
The film's finance was partly raised through crowd sourcing and many members of My Fair London contributed. Do come along and see how powerfully the film puts across the evidence that inequality is harming our society. If you can't make it to the premier don't worry, My Fair London will be arranging a special screening in May (date to be confirmed), and 'The Divide' web site includes listings of dozens of other screenings right across the country, as well as information on how to arrange your own screening.
'The Divide' will help us further promote the evidence that economic inequality is fundamentally harmful to our society, and that together we need to do something about it.
