The Seven Sisters Indoor Market is a feature-length documentary depicting contemporary London in the midst of a major transformation.

 

Using hybrid film language that borrows from documentary and fiction styles, we follow the migrant patrons and traders of The Seven Sisters Indoor Market, with whom we witness an urban experience whose wealth is cultural rather than financial. The sounds of salsa and reggae emanating from their market in Tottenham, north London, are juxtaposed with those of drills and metal clanging heard throughout the city outside.

 

Approaching the consequences of London's transformation with the omnipresent question, ‘who shapes urban space?’, the migrants we encounter show us a hybrid, inclusive, and endangered version of city life.
