116 Two Films by Andrea Luka Zimmerman

#1 Post by Ribs » Wed Mar 15, 2017 2:17 pm

From Second Run's coming soon page:

Taşkafa, Stories of the Street /
Estate, a Reverie
Two films by Andrea Luka Zimmerman
UK, 2013 /2015


Artangel Open Winner, and the first director to be shortlisted for both the Grierson and Jarman Awards, the work of filmmaker, artist and cultural activist Andrea Luka Zimmerman presents tender portraits of community and solidarity, exhibiting sentiments almost entirely missing from our contemporary political vocabulary.

Taşkafa, Stories of the Street (2013) is an essay film about resistance and co-existence told through the lives of the street dogs of Istanbul featuring text and readings by the late John Berger.

Her feature documentary Estate, a Reverie (2015), celebrates her community’s resilience in the face of the impending demolition of their east London housing estate and the passing of the utopian promise of social housing it once offered. Filmed over seven years, Estate reveals and celebrates the resilience of residents, asking how we might resist being framed exclusively through class, gender, ability, disability or geography to present a spirited celebration of extraordinary everyday humanity.

Releasing on DVD in 2017.

Would it be possible to include a private Vimeo link with the DVD? I have looked at some of the "Estate" material on Zimmerman's Vimeo page, and I do want to buy this film. But the drop of picture quality needed for a DVD is a bit sad. I fully understand why this is DVD only.

How long do you realistically think that such a link would stay private?

No idea. I don't know how personalized they can be set. But I noticed others doing that for Kickstarter funded films, so I'm asking if it can be done.

"Two wonderfully satisfying and symbiotic documentary features... after watching both productions side by side the common theme of community, often in the face of prejudice, outright dismissal and stages of harsh transition from the greater society around it, is overwhelmingly clear."
First review is in - an excellent appreciation by Mark Cunliffe at The Geek Show
