CAT IN THE WALL
/in post - production/ 2019, 92 min., DCP
Based on true events, the film explores the sudden alienation of multicultural communities in the heart of London. It takes place on a massive block of flats, looking like the Titanic ship - one of the last strongholds of the British social system. The so-called process of gentrification is reaching its peak and together with Brexit and other political manipulations plants the seed of hatred among people.
A lost cat acts as a catalyst for the unfolding conflict between migrants and their British working-class neighbours living on the social welfare system. Irina, a Bulgarian single mother aspires to climb the social ladder in the British society and deeply despises people living on benefits. The working class family carries a deep drama, and that makes Irina’s attitude change. Both sides flaunt their own prejudices while living together on a sinking ship.
