About 'I Daniel, Blake' film:
Daniel Blake, 59, who has worked as a joiner most of his life in the North East of England needs help from the State for the first time ever following an illness.
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 is to accept a flat some 300 miles away.
Daniel and Katie find themselves in no-man’s land caught in the bureaucracy of the modern day welfare system leaving them struggling to survive. This gritty and hard hitting film includes a visit to their local foodbank.
