CLASS DIVIDE highlights the effects of hyper-gentrification and growing inequality through the microcosm of New York City’s West Chelsea neighbourhood, focusing on an intersection where an elite private school sits directly across the street from low-income public housing. The final film in a trilogy about economic forces affecting ordinary people from director Marc Levin and producer Daphne Pinkerson (HBO’s “Schmatta: Rags to Riches to Rags” and “Hard Times: Lost on Long Island”), this moving chronicle bears witness to the effects of gentrification and stagnant class mobility on young people who share the same neighborhood – yet live in very different worlds – as they try to navigate this rapidly changing landscape.
