A collaboration between the filmmaker Andrea Luka Zimmerman and the theater director Adrian Jackson (whose company, Cardboard Citizens, produces and stages plays for and by London’s homeless population), Here for Life poses a fundamental yet endlessly knotty question: how can we possibly live together? Zimmerman and Jackson gather 10 Londoners to discuss their own experiences of being affected by and resisting gentrification, and their hopes, passions, and everyday struggles. An uncommon work of nonfiction that synthesizes testimonial documentary and avant-garde theater to stirring effect, Here for Life grounds itself in the political acts of listening, reflection, and mutual understanding. A Grasshopper Film release.
