Summer Cinema Programme; Versus: The Life and Films of Ken Loach
An affectionate appraisal of the work of Ken Loach, and an insight into the man himself, following closely on his most recent film success, I, Daniel Blake, winning the Palme d’Or at Cannes. The real bonus here for fans are the well-chosen clips from his incendiary early work for the BBC: a glimpse of the earthy, sexy energy of Up the Junction; the heartrending rawness of Cathy Come Home.
"An Insightful, surprising and moving protrait of a quiet man with a will of steel." - Dave Calhoun, Time Out
