3.00PM: VERSUS: The Life and Films of Ken Loach (12A)
Dir: Louise Osmond, UK, 2016, 93 mins
This documentary presents a surprisingly candid behind-the-scenes account of Ken Loach’s career as he prepares to release his latest feature film, ‘I, Daniel Blake’. Director Louise Osmond was granted exclusive access on set and uses this as a starting point to look at Loach’s career from his first job as an understudy in a Kenneth Williams revue to ground-breaking TV dramas like Cathy Come Home, and later as director of films like Kes, Riff Raff, The Wind That Shakes the Barley and The Angels’ Share.
5.30PM: I, Daniel Blake (U)
Dir: Ken Loach, Screenplay: Paul Laverty, UK, 2016, 100 mins
Natalie Ann Jamieson, Colin Coombs, Harriet Ghost
The tale of Daniel Blake, a 59 year old widower from Newcastle, who is trying to hold on to his welfare benefits, when he befriends a single mother with two children as they navigate their way through the kafkaesque benefits system. With equal amounts of humour, warmth and despair. Winner of the Cannes Palme d’Or, 2016.
