The Divide (cert TBC)

Book now

Director Katharine Round

  • Origin UK/USA
  • Year 2016
  • Duration 78 minutes

The Divide tells the story of seven 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, The Divide uncovers how every aspect of our lives is controlled by one factor: the size of the gap between rich and poor.

The film creates a lyrical, psychological and tragi-comic picture of how economic division creates social division, inspired by the critically-acclaimed, best-selling book “The Spirit Level” by Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett.

Bread And Roses will host a post screening discussion after the film.
