39 Ardencraig Road, G45 0EL Glasgow, United Kingdom.
       This event is not just a film showing, there will be a discussion in which you can express, your views on the subject matter of benefits and sanctions as portrayed in the film, and what we can do about these matters
    Castlemilk Against Austerity and RISE: Glasgow South Circle Invite you to come along to the FREE screening and discussion of the new Ken Loach film I Daniel Blake. I, Daniel Blake is a 2016 drama film directed by Ken Loach and written by Paul Laverty.
         Daniel Blake 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 a 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.
        This is a must see film that truthfully records the inhumane attitudes that are being borne out of the economic policies of austerity. The film will make you feel both sad and angry but will also Inspire you to change it

  1. This is real cinema, art, according to my own concept of what art should be.
    In expressing my thanks to Ken Loach, I am sure that I am not the only one nor the last. To show the iniquity of the system and its injustice is the forced beginning of any change. Thank you, Ken, for making the eyes of the oppressed clearer and more powerful.
