Despite the City

Despite TV and Mark Saunders

1989, 50:00 minutes, English


Despite the City takes a look at the city of London, the heartland of the financiers, its encroachment into the East End and the effects this has on the communities whose homes and livelihoods are under threat as a result of this development.
Despite the City aims to counteract the myths of revitalization which are merely fascades covering the increasing dis-empowerment of local people.
