Class Divide -Film Screening
April 30, 2019 - 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM
Presented as part of The Gifford Foundation “What If…” Film Series.
In partnership with GreeningUSA.
A look at NYC’s gentrification and growing inequality in a microcosm, Class Divide explores two distinct worlds that share the same Chelsea intersection – 10th Avenue and 26th Street. On one side of the avenue, the Chelsea-Elliot Houses have provided low-income public housing to residents for decades. Their neighbor across the avenue since 2012 is Avenues: The World School, a costly private school. What happens when kids from both of these worlds attempt to cross the divide?
Free and open to the public. Followed by a moderated discussion.
About the “What If…” Film Series
The “What If…” Film Series offers free screenings, with moderated discussions, on community change efforts across the country. The purpose of the Series is to screen documentary films that address a community or social issue and show how communities are working to bring about positive social change on this issue. Films are selected based upon their resonance with community issues in Syracuse, NY and the surrounding area and the ability to spark ideas on how our community can also change by asking “What if we tried this in Syracuse?”
