Architecture+Design Film Festival: Estate, a Reverie

Sat, Apr 18 / 7 pm
Directed by Andrea Luka Zimmerman
2015, UK, 83 min

Estate tracks the passing of the Haggerston Estate in Hackney, London and the utopian promise of social housing it  offered, with a spirited celebration of extraordinary everyday humanity. Filmed over seven years, the film reveals and  celebrates the resilience of residents who are profoundly overlooked by media representations and wider social responses.

Plays with:
Some Lots / Dir. Lorne Bailey, 2014, Canada, 23 min / Through clever overlapping of archival photos of downtown Winnipeg  buildings with surface parking lots, Lorne Bailey offers a deadpan commentary on how we have lost many historic landmarks. These buildings include the Grace Church, Empire Hotel, and the McIntyre Block on Main Street.
