Director: Andrea Luka Zimmerman, Adrian Jackson

Free Screening + Q&A

An uncommon story told on common ground by ten Londoners. All have lives shaped by loss and love, trauma and bravery, struggle and resistance. They grapple with a system stacked against them. They dance, steal and eat together; agree and disagree, celebrate their differences and share their talents. The lines between one person’s story and another’s performance of it are blurred, and the borders between reality and fiction are equally porous. Eventually coming together on a makeshift stage built on reclaimed ground between two train tracks, they prompt a debate about the world we live in, who has stolen what from whom, and how things might be fixed. Here for Life marks the culmination of a long collaboration between film-maker Andrea Luka Zimmerman and theatre-maker Adrian Jackson, a troupe of Londoners and a dog.

 

Here for Life was previewed outdoors in 2019 at Nomadic Community Gardens where much of the footage was shot. It was awarded a Special Mention from the Concorso Cineasti del presente jury during its world premiere at the Locarno Film festival, Switzerland 15 August 2019.

 

A Q&A session with director Andrea Luka Zimmerman, Mansions of the Future Artistic Director Kerry Campbell and performers Errol McGlashan & Mwiinga will follow the screening.
