Ken Loach Q&A

In 2016 British director Ken Loach celebrated his 80th birthday, released his 50th major work (Cannes Palme D'Or winner – I, Daniel Blake), and commemorated the 50th anniversary of his landmark TV drama Cathy Come Home.

He is now the subject of a documentary himself Versus: The Life and Films of Ken Loach – a funny, provocative and revealing account of his life and career, looking back at over 50 years of directing and filmmaking.

Following a screening of the documentary at Watershed in June 2016, Ken Loach took questions from the audience on filmmaking, politics, censorship, his influences and his extraordinary body of work.

Presented in partnership with Bristol Festival of Ideas
