I Daniel Blake. Winner of the Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival is screening all this week and most of next at Dundee Contemporary Arts (DCA).
Veteran director Ken Loach’s I, Daniel Blake proves that he has lost none of his touch. This is an important, relevant, moving film about the way ordinary people are being treated by the bureaucracy of our modern welfare state. The film script was partly based on interviews with claimants in Dundee who had been on the end of sanctions.
On Wed 2 November 2016 all screenings of I, Daniel Blake will be free for unwaged customers at DCA - please bring a form of jobseeker or Employment & Support Allowance documentation to claim your free ticket. Their regular discount for unwaged visitors applies to the rest of the film's run until Thursday 10 November.
