I, Daniel Blake Screening
Tuesday 30 June 2020, 6pm - 9pm
Location: Cockroft room 201
Hello everyone! This week we're collaborating with Labour Society to show Ken Loach's timely social drama I, Daniel Blake.
Daniel Blake (Dave Johns) is a 59-year-old widowed carpenter who must rely on welfare after a recent heart attack leaves him unable to work. Despite his doctor's diagnosis, British authorities deny Blake's benefits and tell him to return to his job. As Daniel navigates his way through an agonizing appeal process, he begins to develop a strong bond with a destitute, single mother (Hayley Squires) who's struggling to take care of her two children.
We will be showing the film on Thursday 15th at 6 PM, in C201 in Cockcroft (Moulsecoomb), though if we need to update the address we'll let you know. Afterwards we will be going to The Gladstone pub for drinks.
