The Film: latest film by multi award winning director Ken Loach;
An impassioned, angry and heartfelt drama about day-to-day life in austerity Britain. Daniel Blake is a widower who has worked as a joiner most of his life, but now following a heart attack seeks income support and finds himself caught in a bureaucratic trap. The film is a powerful parable about the failings of the benefits system. It treats its troubled characters with humour and humanity
‘The film has passion and directness and idealism, and very good performances from stand up comic Dave Johns as Daniel Blake and Hayley Squires as Katie.’ ‘One of the most provocative and talked-about films of recent years’
Special Q&A: The screening will be followed by a short Q&A introduced by Tony Reay PCS rep (the Trade Union for benefits office staff) and an activist from Disabled People Against the Cuts organisation. The Q&A will be finished by by 4:10pm.
Lewisham TUC and South East London People’s Assembly Against Austerity (SELPA) have organised a free screening with the support of Disabled People Against Cuts (DPAC), Goldsmiths UNISON, Goldsmiths UCU and Goldsmiths College. It’s being promoted to Union members and anti cuts activists first.
