Sorry We Missed You (15)

2019, UK/Fr/Bel, Dir. Ken Loach, 101 minutes

With I, Daniel Blake Ken Loach told of the difficulties a group of people had trying to meet the demands of the unemployed benefits system while retaining any dignity. Sorry We Missed You is something of a companion piece. Also set in Newcastle, this time Loach and his writer Paul Laverty turn their attention to the scandal of zero hours contracts. People aspire to improve their lives – but is it always possible? This is Loach at his best, unashamedly political and with a simple but powerful message. Prepare to be angered and moved.

Proceeds from the screening of this film will be donated to Zink Employability, a local charity that includes the High Peak Food Bank and provides employability mentoring and coaching services.
