Description

"Not everyone will always agree with Mr. Loach's own politics, but the possibility of a better world is integral to the morality of art, nowhere more so than with Ken Loach."--"The Guardian"

Ken Loach offers rare insights into the process of making socially conscious yet brilliantly artistic films. He explores everything from finding the right script, and the process of raising money with the least amount of conditions placed on the work to the inevitable backlash of creating films that challenge the dominant social narrative. This short and accessible book offers an intriguing and experiential look into the creation of legendary films.

Ken Loach started his career in the theater and went on to become a BBC television director in 1963. He worked on "Z Cars" and then the "Wednesday Play," where he directed the classic "Cathy Come Home." In 1969, Loach made the award-winning film "Kes." Loach won the Palme d'Or at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival for his film "The Wind That Shakes the Barley." His film "The Angels' Share" won the Jury Prize at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. And in 2014 he was presented with the Honorary Golden Bear at the 64th Berlin International Film Festival.
