Taking Soundings will be screening this important new film by Ken Loach on Wednesday 8th May at 7pm in the Rose Bowl, Leeds Metropolitan University, Lecture Theatre C. (The Rose Bowl is adjacent to the Civic Hall, accessible from Woodhouse Lane).
We are very grateful for the support of the School of Cultural Studies at Leeds Met for this screening.
You are invited to stay for a discussion afterwards.
Reviews of the film include:
Ken Loach’s nostalgic homage to the birth of the welfare state and Beveridge spirit is salutary for our age of austerity – Peter Bradshaw in the Guardian
A salutary reminder of exactly what Ken Loach is for – says Tim Robey in the Telegraph
The spirit of 45 – where did it go? asks Yvonne Roberts in the Observer
Ken Loach talks to Time Out about cinema as an act of rebellion
Everyone is welcome. The event is free but a collection will be taken.
