Here For Life




Filmmaker Andrea Luka Zimmerman and theatre director Adrian Jackson have joined forces to make a new feature film with a group of ten Londoners and a dog.  Commissioned and produced by Artangel, preview screenings of Here for Life will take place from 11 – 20 June 2019 in an open-air cinema in Nomadic Community Gardens, the Shoreditch community space which forms the backdrop to the film.

Here for Life follows the experiences of ten individuals living in London, whose lives have been shaped by loss and love, trauma and bravery, struggle and resistance.  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.  Their stories and performances become woven together, blurring the lines between fact and fiction through a series of intimate confessions, staged performances and journeys through London.

Eventually the cast meet on a makeshift stage in Nomadic Community Gardens, a unique community space between two train tracks on the fringes of the City of London. They spark a debate about the world in which we live, who has stolen what from whom, and how things might be fixed.

Here for Life will be presented at a series of outdoor screenings at sundown in Nomadic Gardens from 11 – 20 July. Each screening will be preceded by live performances.
