Description

Versus: The Life and Films of Ken Loach

VERSUS presents a surprisingly candid behind-the-scenes account of Ken Loach’s career as he prepares to release his latest feature film I, DANIEL BLAKE, later this year. Director Louise Osmond was granted exclusive access on set and uses this as a starting point to look at Loach’s career, from his first job as understudy in a Kenneth Williams revue to groundbreaking TV dramas like Up The Junction and Cathy Come Home and later as an award- winning feature director of films like Kes, Riff-Raff, The Wind That Shakes the Barley, and The Angels’ Share. As well as interviews with Loach, Osmond talks with a host of his friends, adversaries, actors and collaborators. This year will see Ken Loach celebrate his 80th birthday, release his 50th major work and commemorate Cathy Come Home’s 50th anniversary in November. VERSUS is more than just a document of Loach’s work but a playful study on the process and struggles of creating such a unique body of work. I, DANIEL BLAKE won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival.

Running time: 1h 33m


Street Smart

Street Smart opens our eyes to Regina Tito’s experience living on the streets of Wellington; how she saw herself and how she believed the public saw her. Born from those experiences, Regina expresses a unique and largely ignored perspective on homelessness in Aotearoa, offering an insight into a community growing at an alarming rate. This is one woman’s personal perspective of a very real issue, which is being largely ignored by the general public.

Running time: 3m 21s


Now Showing Club is Manchester’s first dedicated documentary cinema and will be showcasing 50 films from Dogwoof’s back catalogue in 2019. Visitors can expect a curated selection of titles which have received 24 Oscar nominations, including Free Solo, Minding the Gap, RBG, The Act of Killing and Blackfish.
