Andrea Luka Zimmerman is a Jarman Award winning artist, filmmaker and cultural activist whose work unveils aspects of working class experience, and that of people living on the margins of society, that are seldom seen or discussed. Using imaginative hybridity and narrative re-framing, alongside reverie and a creative waywardness, the work prioritises an enduring and equitable co-existence, and there is often a focus on the importance of social bonds within these communities. Films include the Artangel produced Here For Life (2019), winning Special Mention at the Cineasti Del Presente international competition of the 72nd Locarno Film Festival, 2019 and first prize (feature film) at the Palmares Festival De Cinema En Ville! - 2020, Erase and Forget (2017), world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival (nominated for the Glashutte Original Documentary Award), Estate, a Reverie (2015) (nominated for the Grierson Award) and Taskafa, Stories of the Street (2013) which was written and voiced by John Berger.
