Director (and obvious fan) Louise Osmond (Dark Horse) enjoyed unprecedented access to the making of legendary auteur and political firebrand Ken Loach’s new and final film, I, Daniel Blake. From this has sprung a wider film biography of perhaps Britain’s best-known socially concsious writer-director who has worked across theatre, cinema and television with documentaries and much-lauded dramas such as Kes, The Wind That Shakes The Barley, The Angels’ Share, and 1966’s groundbreaking Cathy Come Home.
To celebrate the release of Versus: The Life and Films of Ken Loach, cinema-goers are invited to pay-what-they-can for matinee screenings of the film on Sunday 5 June at Picturehouses across London. Tickets will be available on a first-come-first-served basis from the box office on the day of the screening.
This initiative is supported by Dogwoof with the backing of the BFI Distribution Fund. See here for participating cinemas.
