The films of Ken Loach are being made available for the first time online on YouTube as his new film, “Irish Route”, is nominated for a Palme d’Or at the Cannes film festival.
His uncompromising, realistic style led to films like Cathy Come Home and Kes—angry, honest and sometimes amusing portraits of working class life.
Loach’s commitment to internationalism and workers’ rights is reflected in films like Bread and Roses—about the battle of poorly paid migrant janitors in the US.
The first season of Loach’s films is now available and worth a visit—log on to YouTube and type in “Ken Loach”.
