A little chat with: #askLoach

Ken Loach



Ken Loach, for sure, needs no introduction. He starts his career as an actor, before joining the BBC in 1963 where he becomes one of the pioneers of a new form of drama based on real events. In 1967 he achieves international recognition with Kes (1969) and Family Life (1971). He twice wins the Palme d’Or in Cannes, with The Wind That Shakes the Barley (2006) and I, Daniel Blake (2016) that will be screened this evening in Piazza Grande, 21.30. 

On Friday, the 12th of August, Ken Loach will be in Locarno for a conversation with the public. A great occasion to get to know him better, to discover some anecdotes on his career and to hear his stories, his ideas on cinema and his point of view on society. Curious?
