Join Falkirk Food Futures Film Club for a screening of I, Daniel Blake

About this event

Take One Action patron Ken Loach returns to contemporary Britain for this impassioned indictment of its brutal welfare system.

Daniel Blake has worked as a joiner most of his life in Newcastle. Now, for the first time ever, he needs help from the State. He crosses paths with a single mother Katie and her two young children, Daisy and Dylan. Katie’s only chance to escape a one-roomed homeless hostel in London has been to accept a flat in a city she doesn’t know, some 300 miles away. Daniel and Katie find themselves in no-man’s land, caught on the barbed wire of welfare bureaucracy as played out against the rhetoric of ‘striver and skiver’ in modern-day Britain.

We’ll be welcoming guests from 6.30pm for a 7pm screening and we will host a panel discussion after the film. Our speakers will be announced nearer the time.
