Andrew Luka Zimmerman's Estate, a Reverie tracks the passing of the Haggerston Estate (1936-2014) in Hackney.

About

ANDREA LUKA ZIMMERMAN / 2015 / UNITED KINGDOM / 83''

Estate, a Reverie tracks the passing of the Haggerston Estate (1936-2014) in Hackney, London and the utopian promise of social housing it offered, with an unruly celebration of extraordinary everyday humanity.

Filmed over seven years, Estate, a Reverie seeks to reveal and celebrate the resilience of residents who are profoundly overlooked by media representations and wider social responses. Interweaving intimate portraits with the residents' own historical re-enactments and dramatised scenes, Estate, a Reverie asks how we might resist being framed exclusively through class, gender, ability or disability, and even through geography.

Screening followed by Q&A with director Andrea Luka Zimmerman, hosted by Alex Apsan Frediani.
