“A choice to look” – inequality in Cambridge

Most people who live in Cambridge probably have a better idea of what life is like in San Francisco than they do of what life is like ten miles down the road.

A short film produced by Cambridge Varsity, the University of Cambridge’s independent student newspaper, which examines contrasting levels of poverty and wealth within the ‘town and gown’ city and its surrounding areas.

Featuring interviews with Rowan Williams, David Runciman, Kate Pickett and Richard Wilkinson, this documentary explores the relation between the University of Cambridge and Britain’s most unequal city.
