I, Daniel Blake (15)

Ken Loach | UK, France, Belgium | 2016 | 100’

Daniel Blake, has worked as a joiner most of his life, but, following an illness, he needs help from the State for the first time ever. He crosses paths with single mother Katie, whose only chance to escape a one roomed homeless hostel is to accept a flat 300 miles away. Daniel and Katie find themselves in no-man’s land, caught on the barbed wire of welfare bureaucracy now played out against the rhetoric of ‘striver and skiver’ in modern day Britain.

I, Daniel Blake is a powerful, humane drama – a damning indictment of austerity Britain which was awarded the Palme d'Or at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival.
