Screening of Estate: A Reverie

Followed by a discussion with the film-makers

A Department of Drama research event
Date22 July 2016
PlaceAlexander Building TS1

A film by Andrea Luka Zimmerman produced by Fugitive Images songs by Olivia Chaney “Samuel House, the final block in Hackney's Haggerston estate was demolished in autumn 2014, exemplar of a nationwide, even international, shift in the character and fabric of the inner cities. Filmed over seven years, Estate, a Reverie reveals and celebrates the resilience of residents 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.” You are very welcome to join us for a screening of the film, followed by a discussion between Fugitive Image’s David Roberts and the University of Exeter’s Katie Beswick, who is currently researching estate arts practices. Refreshments will be provided. The event is free of charge, but please do email k.beswick@exeter.ac.uk if you intend to attend.
