Poverty and Participation in the Media

PROJECT CLIP - Rich Kid Poor Kid - Perspective of the Producer

Zac Beattie directed the film Rich Kid Poor Kid, which was shot in Larkhall, Stockwell, and aired on Channel 4 in November 2008, as part of the Cutting Edge series. The film depicted the stark contrast between the very wealthy and the very poor in London, and the extreme proximity in which they exist.



Spectacle has been running Poverty and Participation in the Media workshops in the area since early 2008. Zac came to Spectacle to be interviewed by Carol Chin and Jheni Arboine, both Larkhall residents and workshop participants.

Issues raised in this interview can be discussed on the Spectacle Blog.

These clips, along with footage from other Spectacle projects, can also be viewed in the Archive.
