Thornbury Picture House: I, Daniel Blake

Cossham Hall, Thornbury

Ken Loach's 2nd Cannes Palme d'Or winner. After having a heart-attack, Daniel Blake a 59-year-old carpenter must fight bureaucracy in order to receive Employment and Support Allowance. He has been ordered by his doctors to stay out of any vigorous action and to rest, however, after a negative employment support assessment, he is deemed ineligible for compensation, not scoring enough points to obtain benefits. Without any income or a pension, desperate and frustrated from the endless, dead-end conversations over the phone with the impersonal government health-care agents, Daniel visits the welfare office to make an appeal, only to face the draconian social workers and to be consumed by the faceless system and its bureaucratic jargon. Against all odds, with perseverance and courage, Daniel stands up for himself and for those in need, withstanding nobly the humiliation while reminding that, above all, we are human by default.
