Movie Info

A Moving Image is an award winning multimedia feature film about gentrification in Brixton, incorporating fiction, documentary and performance art. We follow Nina, a young stifled artist, as she returns to her community after a long absence - she is soon painted as a symbol of gentrification. As she struggles with her own complicity, we follow her mission to create a piece of art that can bring her community together. On her journey we speak to real people affected by gentrification in Brixton, blurring the line between reality and fiction.

Although the film's approach to issues is a little on the nose at times, in Amoo, we are introduced to a distinctive and bold new voice in British cinema.

Fittingly, the film is itself a grand collage, drama spliced with documentary, music and dance.

The movie shrewdly lays out how a district's bohemian and diverse character is what makes it vulnerable to long-term predatory investment, pushing Brixton in the direction of white Notting Hill.
