We have been working with an intergenerational group of residents on the Alexandra and Ainsworth Estate in NW London to make a documentary film about the estate. The film is being launched this weekend at a cinema and the whole estate is invited as well as Neave Brown, the architect who designed it, and anyone else interested in coming along.
Saturday 15th May, 11am
269 Kilburn High Road

Residents living on The Alexandra and Ainsworth Estate (commonly known as Rowley Way) have seen their landmark Grade II* listed estate depicted on film and TV for years, often incorrectly as a crime-ridden hell-hole. As well as film crews the estate is a favourite among architects who come from all over the world to photograph and write about it.
Residents decided to make their own film exploring the ideas behind the design of the estate and in the process interviewed neighbours aged 3 to 103 as well as the architect who designed the estate and others involved in it’s construction.
This is your chance to get under the skin of the Estate, beyond the architecture students, beyond the reputation, beyond The Bill.
A Q&A will follow the screening with filmmakers and the architect, Neave Brown.
