‘Estate’ with Andrea Zimmerman (2015)

Artist and activist Andrea Zimmerman speaks about her film ‘Estate. ‘Estate’ reflects on the reasons for and consequences of urban regeneration, gentrification and architecture. It is a project about time and place, forms of dreaming and the capacity for wonder within ongoing and growing daily systemic pressures. The project sought to give the residents a voice and a visual presence – to counter the many myths and clichés of their mainstream representation, and to offer a modest signpost towards a wider relevance and way of being in the city; a more inclusive and supportive form of social and personal interaction. The talk moves quickly to a group discussion with the attendees.
