Perceptions on Chaos — Hackney takes us on a conversational journey through the ongoing gentrification of one of the main boroughs of London’s East End.
Previously a home for the poor and a hub for a huge number of artists, Hackney has recently seen an extortionate rise in property prices and construction of luxury flats, forcing a large part of the population to move further out of the city — only one piece of a wider change taking place all across London. Perceptions on Chaos records the sights and sentiments surrounding these changes through dialogues with a handful of the borough’s most influential personalities.
Catch the documentary’s premiere, and learn a thing or two about shifting societies close to home, this Saturday 3 June at the Old Spitafields Market. Perceptions on Chaos will be proudly screened as part of ALL EYES EAST, a free event linked to this year’s East End Film Festival, which is digging in deep to cultural changes surrounding us all.
