The Producers

Ken Loach

One of Britain's greatest filmmakers, Ken Loach has been a pioneer of socially conscious, uncompromising cinema, serving as Britain’s celluloid conscience throughout the last fifty years. From his breakthrough film Kes to the Palm d’Or winning I, Daniel Blake, Loach's career is a testament to cinema's ability to challenge the powerful and champion the causes of the oppressed. Spanning subjects as different as the Spanish Civil War (Land and Freedom) to the Liverpool’s dock work-ins (The Big Flame), witness the work of one of the defining artists of the 20th and 21st century.
