Movie Info

A Moving Image is an award winning multimedia feature film about gentrification in Brixton, incorporating fiction, documentary and performance art. We follow Nina, a young stifled artist, as she returns to her community after a long absence - she is soon painted as a symbol of gentrification. As she struggles with her own complicity, we follow her mission to create a piece of art that can bring her community together. On her journey we speak to real people affected by gentrification in Brixton, blurring the line between reality and fiction.

  • This impassioned docudrama makes the unfortunate mistake of confusing artistic ambition with intellectual incoherence.

  • The movie shrewdly lays out how a district's bohemian and diverse character is what makes it vulnerable to long-term predatory investment, pushing Brixton in the direction of white Notting Hill.

  • The simple title, loaded with meaning, should not disguise just how much is packed into this profound and articulate debut feature from a very promising London-based filmmaker.

  • Although the film's approach to issues is a little on the nose at times, in Amoo, we are introduced to a distinctive and bold new voice in British cinema.

  • Writer and director Shola Amoo is almost certainly headed for great things.
