The new film by British filmmaker Ken Loach, I Daniel Blake won the Palme d’Or at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival.

Daniel Blake (59) has worked as a joiner most of his life in Newcastle. Now, for the first time ever, he needs help from the State. He crosses paths with single mother Katie and her two young children, Daisy and Dylan. Katie’s only chance to escape a one-roomed homeless hostel in London has been to accept a flat in a city she doesn’t know, some 300 miles away.

Daniel and Katie find themselves in no-man’s land, caught on the barbed wire of welfare bureaucracy as played out against the rhetoric of ‘striver and skiver’ in modern-day Britain.

One thought on “#IDanielBlakeDay

  1. Thumbs up to Ken Loach for making this film to not only teach us to fighting against those who use their narrow-minded views as well as beliefs by attacking those that are deprived in society, but showing us in society that we can make a great difference.

    I, Daniel Blake is in us and we shouldn’t forget that.
