Estate: a story of love, loss and lasting memories
An iconic East London housing estate, already transformed by a landmark public artwork, is set in its last days to become the star of a bold new non-fiction feature film.
As an old building is bulldozed a new construction rises in its place. On this site of creation and destruction, past and future stand for a moment face to face. The film inhabits this moment.
"The world shall not perish for lack of wonders but for lack of wonder" J.B.S. Haldane
Capturing a moment of imminent transition, the artist essay film Estate reflects on urgent matters of regeneration, gentrification and architecture; its reasons, possibilities and consequences. But more importantly, it is a film about time and place, dreams and wonder. During this moment, where one structure has broken down, and a new one is about to form, another space unfolds; a space of messiness, of uncertainty, and of absolute initiative. In this liminal opening, how might we ask important questions of our ideas of home, of history, always in the making, and of our capacities of imagination; that which influences not only how we’re seen, but also how we see; how we dream?
