VERSUS: THE LIFE AND FILMS OF KEN LOACH

(Louise Osmond, UK, 2016, 93 min.)

With 30 films to his credit — all of them dealing the oppression of workers by their bosses, their government, even their unions — Ken Loach has become Filmmaker to the Working Class. His films have been a staple of the Rochester Labor Film Series: we’ve screened twelve of them! Our tribute begins with Versus, a recent documentary that traces Loach’s career from his early years at the BBC to his prize-winning feature films, describing the evolution of his concerns and methods. (Did you know that he shoots the scenes of feature films in their sequential order?)
