KEN LOACH Patron
Ken Loach is an internationally acclaimed British filmmaker and known for his social realist style of directing. His films often reflect his political beliefs, championing workers’ rights (Riff-Raff, 1991) or highlighting social justice issues such as homelessness (Cathy Come Home, 1966) and immigration (Bread and Roses, 2000). In the more recent production It’s a Free World… (2007), Ken took on the subject of exploitation for labour in the context of a world where the pursuit of profit is often put ahead of human concerns. It was screened as the closing film of the first Unchosen film festival in Bristol and since then Ken has been a strong supporter of our organisation.
