VERSUS: THE LIFE AND FILMS OF KEN LOACH
NORTH AMERICAN PREMIERE Ken Loach’s latest drama I, Daniel Blake, about an aging British worker, won the prestigious Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. During its making, documentarian Louise Ormond (Dark Horse) captured Loach’s process. She looks back on his 50-year career, tracing his passionate commitment to working-class voices through films such as Cathy Come Home, Riff-Raff, My Name is Joe and The Wind That Shakes the Barley. Her documentary is an indispensable guide to a great auteur.
