LapseLondon

On the 6th of December 2014, Triggertrap brought together more than 40 photographers for an exciting, one-off photography event. LapseLondon invited photographers to create an incredible crowdsourced timelapse video of London in just one day. The diversity, atmosphere, pace and buzz of the city make London the perfect canvas for any timelapse, and its unique flavour is captured over 80 clips in the LapseLondon film.

The 80 timelapse clips included in LapseLondon are composed of over 35,000 photographs shot over 40 hours, all within the same day.

Estate, a Reverie - documentary and Q&A event at the Rio on 10 January

Estate, A Reverie (dir. Andrea Luka Zimmerman) tracks the passing of the Haggerston Estate (1938-2014) in Hackney and the utopian promise of social housing it offered, with an unruly celebration of extraordinary everyday humanity.

Filmed over seven years, Estate, A Reverie seeks to reveal and celebrate the resilience of residents who are profoundly overlooked by media representations and wider social responses. Interweaving intimate portraits with the residents' own historical re-enactments and dramatised scenes, the film asks how we might resist being framed exclusively through class, gender, ability or disability, and through geography even.

The documentary, followed by Q&A with Director Andrea Luka Zimmerman and Iain Sinclair, will be shown at a special event at the Rio on 10 January.

"Knowing the previous work of its creators, I believe this project will achieve something very significant for the times we are living in. It will remind us - and how appropriate this is for the medium of film - that, both politically and humanly, the past is not behind us, not obsolescent, but beside us and urgent." (John Berger)
