'Knowing the previous work of its creators, I believe this project will achieve something very significant for the times we are living in. It will remind us - and how appropriate this is for the medium of film - that, both politically and humanly, the past is not behind us, not obsolescent, but beside us and urgent.' - John Berger
Filmed over seven years, Estate, a Reverie reveals and celebrates 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, 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.
This screening marks the release of Andrea Luka Zimmerman's work on DVD from Second Run, and will be followed by a Q&A with the Jarman and Grierson Award shortlisted and Artangel Open winning film-maker hosted by Gareth Evans, film curator of the Whitechapel Gallery.
