Ken Loach

Ken Loach Kenneth Charles Loach (born 17 June 1936) is a British director of television and independent film. His socially critical directing style and socialist ideals are evident in his film treatment of social issues such as poverty (''Poor Cow'', 1967), homelessness (''Cathy Come Home'', 1966) and labour rights (''Riff-Raff'', 1991, and ''The Navigators'', 2001).

Loach's film ''Kes'' (1969) was voted the seventh greatest British film of the 20th century in a poll by the British Film Institute. Two of his films, ''The Wind That Shakes the Barley'' (2006) and ''I, Daniel Blake'' (2016) received the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival, making him the ninth filmmaker to win the award twice.

Loach, a social campaigner for most of his career, believes the current criteria for claiming benefits in the UK are "a Kafka-esque, ''Catch-22'' situation designed to frustrate and humiliate the claimant to such an extent that they drop out of the system and stop pursuing their right to ask for support if necessary".
