'The Climate of Fear Is Unacceptable' - Ken Loach on I, Daniel Blake

Ken Loach’s Palme d’Or-winning film I, Daniel Blake tells the story of a man who is denied disability benefit after a heart attack and who is then subsequently caught in a bureaucratic nightmare – along with Katie, a young woman with two children to protect. Loach, scriptwriter Paul Laverty and the Newcastle-set film’s two lead actors, Dave Johns and Hayley Squires, talk about the iniquities of the system

I, Daniel Blake is released on 21 October in the UK, 17 November in Australia, and 23 December in the US
