Film-maker Andrea Luka Zimmerman and Cardboard Citizens Artistic Director Adrian Jackson have joined forces to make a new feature film following a long collaboration with a group of ten Londoners and a dog. Commissioned and produced by Artangel, Here for Life will be shown in a series of outdoor preview screenings in Nomadic Community Gardens, the Shoreditch location where many key sequences were shot.
Here for Life is shaped by the real-life experiences of ten distinct individuals, all of whom have lived contrasting lives shaped by loss and love, trauma and bravery, struggle and resilience. They dance together, steal together, eat together; agree and disagree, celebrate their differences and share their talents, grappling with a system that seems stacked against them.
Each screening is preceded by a programme of live performances and the bar will be open throughout the evening.
