Estate: an evening with Andrea Zimmerman and David Roberts
Thursday 28 November 2013, 7pm
Meeting point: Samuel House, Dunston Road corner of Clarissa Street, by the canal at 7pm.
As a 1930s block is bulldozed, a luxury-apartment-complex rises. The film Estate tracks the passing of Hackney’s Haggerston Estate and wider utopian principles of social housing, offering an unruly celebration of extraordinary everyday humanity. Challenging tired stereotypes, Estate interweaves intimate long-term observational footage with the residents’ own historical re-enactments and dramatised reveries.
Filmmaker Andrea Zimmerman and researcher David Roberts introduce the forthcoming film Estate, starting with a walk and ending with a public conversation and the projection of excerpts.
