Estate, a Reverie, a documentary film by Andrea Luka Zimmerman (83 mins, 2015) produced by Fugitive Images, with songs by Olivia Chaney.

SYNOPSIS: Estate, a Reverie is a spirited celebration of extraordinary everyday humanity. Filmed over seven years, Estate, a Reverie reveals and celebrates the resilience of residents in Hackney’s Haggerston estate in London who are profoundly overlooked and stereotyped by media representations and wider social responses. Interweaving intimate portraits with the residents’ own historical re-enactments, landscape and architectural studies and dramatised scenes, Estate, a Reverie asks how we might resist being framed exclusively through class, gender, ability or disability, and even through geography…

FILMMAKER STATEMENT: It feels important to say that Estate has not been made about this community, but has been made from it. Through a variety of filmic registers and strategies, I seek to capture the genuinely utopian quality of the last few years of the buildings’ existence, a period when, because demolition was inevitable, a sense of the possible, of the emergence of new, but of course time-specific, social and organizational relationships developed, a fresh understanding of how the residents might occupy the spaces of the estate. How can we express the fullest possibility of our being, creatively and collectively?
