The Divide cuts the stories of 7 people seeking a better life in Britain and America, with news footage from 1979 to today, and highlights how the economic divide – where the top 0.1% owns as much wealth as the bottom 90% – creates social division. It reveals how virtually every aspect of our lives is controlled by one factor: the size of the gap between rich and poor. Watch the trailer.

The Divide isn’t based on real life. This is real life. It serves as both a call to arms, and a powerful warning. The film is inspired by the critically-acclaimed, best-selling book The Spirit Level by Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett.

Refreshments will be available in the Cafe from 6pm. Momentum PCS are holding a briefing for PCS conference delegates from 6.30pm – 8.15pm in the Meeting Room. The film screening will follow at 8.30pm and be introduced by PCS General Secretary Mark Serwotka. The Divide runs for 77 minutes and there will be time to discuss the issues raised afterwards.

Tickets: £4 waged, £2 unwaged available in advance from Sussex LRC and Momentum Brighton & Hove, or on the door. This event is a fundraiser for Momentum Brighton & Hove.
