KEN LOACH

Friday, April 19 – Thursday, May 2

“If change is to come, it must come from the working class. That’s why telling their story is important. That’s why knowing our history is important.”
– Ken Loach

A two-week, 21-film festival of work by British director KEN LOACH, including KES, RIFF-RAFF,
POOR COW, I, DANIEL BLAKE, LADYBIRD, LADYBIRD, SWEET SIXTEEN, LOOKING FOR ERIC,
THE WIND THAT SHAKES THE BARLEY and many more.

THE OLD OAK, Ken Loach’s latest and final film, is now playing at Film Forum.

Special thanks to Rebecca O’Brien (Sixteen Films), Julie Pearce (BFI), and Jake Perlin (The Film Desk).

Reviews

"Film Forum’s wide-ranging retrospective, which generously samples Loach’s prolific output from 1967 to the present, offers an opportunity to marvel at the breadth and emotional heft of an audacious career...Viewed en masse, Loach’s movies form a cinema of working-class superheroes, caped in hard-knock resilience."
– Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times
