IRISH MANCUNIAN presents two superb films directed by Ken Loach:

I, DANIEL BLAKE
Recent BAFTA winner, and winner of the 2016 Palme d’Or, “I, Daniel Blake” exposes the injustices of the benefits system through the story of an affable carpenter fighting to claim his allowances after falling ill. 
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ahWgxw9E_h4
“Blunt, dignified, and brutally moving” - The Guardian

JIMMY'S HALL
Based on the story of 1930s political activist Jimmy Gralton who ran a community hall in defiance of the local hierarchy. The Irish president recently apologised for Gralton’s treatment.
