'The Old Oak' film screening

Our next event will be a screening of Ken Loach’s film ‘The Old Oak’ at the Glasgow Film Theatre on Tuesday 4th June. The film follows the story of a friendship between a pub landlord and a Syrian refugee in a once thriving mining village. Together, they try to bridge the social divides between their communities.

Themes central to the film that are relevant to our work, include poverty, racism, social inequalities, community, and food. This is a raw and hard-hitting film but one that calls for hope, compassion and solidarity.  

The screening will be followed by a short discussion and Q&A session, for which we are delighted to be joined by David Archibald, Professor of Political Cinemas at the University of Glasgow.

“It's as engrossing, thoughtful, heartfelt, angry, hopeful, and altogether valuable as his best work. If it is indeed Loach's farewell, it's one hell of a fine note to go out on.” (Roger Ebert) 

Please note: this film is 15 certificate classification.
