Reel to Real: I, Daniel Blake
May 4, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm£2 – £4
Bounce Back and Reel to Real present: I, Daniel Blake
I Daniel Blake | Ken Loach | 2016 | 80 minutes | 15 | UK
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.
As part of the launch of our latest project, Bounce Back, this is our second screening of I, Daniel Blake in Dumfries. Join us after the film to find our more about the project, which is focused on NW Dumfries and the newly launched Ignition Fund.
Tickets: £4/2 on the door. Tickets are available in advance from the Stove cafe, or can be reserved online by emailing Katie<at>the stove.org
