HERE FOR LIFE is a London-set film about people battling against gentrification and trying to keep old communities alive. The film is made by artists Andrea Luka Zimmerman, a co-founder of the collectives Fugitive Images and Vision Machine, and Adrian Jackson, a leading expert on the theatre of the oppressed, who in 1991 founded the theatre project Cardboard Citizens. A hybrid film, mixing documentary, poetry and fiction, HERE FOR LIFE is a testimony to the actors from Cardboard Citizens playing versions of themselves on screen.
Their loves and their losses; living lyrically between fiction and fact. What does it cost to exist? We are all here for life; here for now!
