Synopsis

Class Divide takes kids from two sides of 10th Avenue and 26th Street – from the projects on one side and the new private ‘Avenues – the World School’ on the other – and follows them as they grapple with the incredible changes transforming Chelsea. These kids are witnesses to a microcosm of what’s happening around the world – rising inequality, stagnant class mobility, gentrification and much more. The film is a moving chronicle of kids who are neighbors, yet from very different backgrounds, all trying to make sense of where they fit in this rapidly changing new world and what their relationships are to each other.
