This is why I, Daniel Blake – about a joiner who falls ill and must fight the bureaucracy of the UK welfare system – is one of the most important films of our time.
You may have heard about this film leaving audiences in tears. Our aim is to instead channel these emotions into passionate activism so we can better help the real-life Daniel Blakes that exist in our communities. Join us for a screening of the film followed by a panel discussion.
Ken Loach’s fierce, emphatic drama I, Daniel Blake is the triumphant winner of the Cannes 2016 Palme …d’Or.
We will be joined by speakers from CAP (Community Awareness Programme) & others TBC
