Estate, a Reverie

Synopsis

As a 1930s Hackney housing block is bulldozed, a new luxury apartment 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.

Capturing a moment of imminent transition, the non-fiction 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 proposals, of uncertainty, and of absolute initiative. In this 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.
