HACKNEY INDEPENDENT FILM SHOW
The Battle for Broadway Market
At the end of November 2005 an occuption was started by local residents at 34 Broadway Market to prevent it being knocked down for luxury flats.
Over the next few months support multiplied and the news travelled around the world. It’s a story that brings in corrupt property developers, an incompetant council, rampant gentrification and the question of just what sort of community we want in 21st century London.
This is the definitive film of the event.
Dir: Emily James, 2006, 62 minutes
