A funny, provocative and revealing account of the life and career of one of Britain’s foremost filmmakers, Ken Loach, as he turns eighty and looks back at over fifty years of filmmaking.
who won the 2016 Cannes Palme D'Or for 'I, Daniel Blake'.
Loach is an English film and television director known for his naturalistic, social realist directing style and for his socialism, which are evident in his film treatment of social issues such as homelessness and labour rights.
Unlike virtually all his contemporaries, Loach has never succumbed to the siren call of Hollywood, and it's virtually impossible to imagine his particular brand of British socialist realism translating well to that context.
From ‘Poor Cow’ (1967) and ‘Kes’ (1969) in his early years, to the more recent ‘The Wind that Shakes the Barley’ (2006) and ‘Looking for Eric’ (2007) he has proved to be one of the most consistent directors of our age.
