Event description

Description

I, Daniel Blake tells the story of 59 year old joiner, Daniel, and Katie, a young mother, caught up in the web of the uncaring benefits’ system, played out against the rhetoric of ‘striver and skiver’ in modern day Britain.

"On one level, it is a polemical indictment of a faceless benefits bureaucracy that strips claimants of their humanity by reducing them to mere numbers – neoliberal 1984 meets uncaring, capitalist Catch-22. On another, it is a celebration of the decency and kinship of (extra)ordinary people who look out for each other when the state abandons its duty of care." Mark Kermode, Observer film critic

Immediately after the screening there will be a Q&A with Producer Rebecca O Brien.

There will be an opportunity to make a donation to a foodbank
