As Britain today faces yet another round of harsh austerity measures, while rising wealth is concentrated in ever fewer hands, what is the true cost of inequality?

From the carer on a zero-hour contract to the ambitious Wall Street psychologist who aspires to the affluent lifestyle of the burnt-out traders he supports, The Divide successfully articulates how the rising gap between rich and poor negatively impacts people from the bottom to the top of society.

This empathic and engaging documentary offers ample food for thought, and leaves an urgent question for us to answer: what role can we all play in driving out inequality?

“The Divide is Katharine Round’s long- awaited feature documentary on inequality and, as it turns out, it was worth the wait.”
