Director Ken Loach will be talking about his fifty years in film with the writer and critic Francine Stock.

His best films, like Cathy Come Home and The Wind That Shakes The Barley, are notable for their honest portrayals of working class life, leading to widely differing reactions from his audience. Some see them as left-leaning, while others hail him as a thorn in the side of the establishment.

The talk will be followed by an audience Q&A session.
