The resilient stories of ten London residents form the basis of this collaborative project directed by artist and filmmaker Andrea Luka Zimmerman and Adrian Jackson, founder of Cardboard Citizens, a theatre project that aims to change the lives of homeless people through the performing arts. The subjects congregate at Nomadic Community Garden in Shoreditch, East London, where they tell stories, eat, dance and bicker, eventually producing provocative performance pieces of their own. Collectively, they resist the gentrification and the erosion of communities they are witnesses to. Here for Life stands as an important, poetic and potent statement for our times. MH
There will be a post-screening Q&A with Andrea Luka Zimmerman
