A Moving Image : A Film about Gentrification
A Moving Image is a multimedia feature film about Gentrification in Brixton, incorporating fiction, documentary and performance art.
We follow Nina, a young stifled artist as she returns to her community after a long absence – she is soon painted as a symbol of gentrification and struggles with her complicity.
She forms a three-way relationship with an actor called Mickey and a Nigerian performance artist called Ayo, who both have very different views on the changes taking place in their environment.
During an unnaturally hot summer in London, Nina sets out to create the ultimate piece of art to explore her complex relationship with her community.
In doing so, she poses a tricky question – is she truly part of the problem or can she use her work to be part of the solution?
On her journey, she interviews real members of the community who have been affected by Gentrification, blurring the line between reality and fiction.
