Ken Loach – the granddaddy of social realism – is giving a public interview at the IFI on Thursday 8th May as part of a major two-month retrospective of his work.
Over the course of fifty years, Ken Loach’s seminal work in film and TV includes classics such as Kes (1969), My Name is Joe (1998) and The Wind That Shakes the Barley (2006).
The interview will be followed by a free (but ticketed) screening of his seminal TV play, Cathy Come Home (1966).
Rumour has it that Loach’s latest, Jimmy’s Hall (released on 30th May), will be his last feature before moving into documentary.
For a rare opportunity to hear the man discuss his career, tickets for this event are available here.
