Class Divide, a New HBO Documentary About Hyper-Gentrification in Chelsea

Class Divide is a new HBO documentary from filmmaker Marc Levin and his production company Blowback Productions which explores hyper-gentrification in Chelsea over the past several decades.

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?

Catch the film at IFC Center April 13th — 19th.
