In Conversation with Ken Loach

Ken Loach, the award-winning director, will join Guardian film critic Peter Bradshaw for a live-streamed discussion.

Loach’s breakthrough film, Kes, was released 50 years ago, and since then he has directed 26 further feature films, including I, Daniel Blake in 2016, and last year’s Sorry We Missed You.

His films are particularly known for their commentary on the state of the nation; the former shaped public debate about the inhumane welfare system, and the latter explores the dangerous realities of working in the gig economy.

He will be talking to Bradshaw about his career, what he has learned through the decades, and his thoughts on deep rifts of inequality cutting through British society today. In this live-streamed discussion, you will have the opportunity to ask Loach your questions in real time.

Running time: 60 minutes
