A crowdfunded movie exploring the changing face of London’s communities is hitting selected cinemas this week.

A Moving Image takes an interesting look at gentrification in Brixton. As Nina, played by Tanya Fear, returns to the area after some time away in East London, she rails against the presence of hipsters and wealthier people in the area.

However, things are made more complex when she is seen as a symbol of gentrification by those around her when she tries to make a film on the subject.

The film is truly a product of people coming together in community. Film-maker Shola Amoo raised £4,782 on Indiegogo and the rest of his £7,000 goal outside of the website to get the project off the ground.

A Moving Image premiered at the London Film Festival last week, and is on show at the Hackney Picturehouse and Brixton’s own Ritzy cinema.

You can also get involved. The movie’s website is asking people to take part in the conversation by sending in videos of gentrification in their communities.
