Auckland Action Against Poverty and the Auckland Women's Centre warmly invite you to a special screening of 'I, Daniel Blake' this October.

Fifty years since Ken Loach raged against homelessness in his television play Cathy Come Home, the British filmmaker has made a film infused with the same quiet but righteous anger about the failings of the society around him. I, Daniel Blake is the story of an unlikely but tender friendship between Katie (Hayley Squires), a single mother from London with two kids, and Dan (Dave Johns), a Geordie carpenter in his late fifties who’s out of work and recovering from a heart attack.

Both Katie and Dan are feeling the sharp end of the shrinking welfare state: Katie has been forced to move her children north to Newcastle to find a flat; Dan is stuck in a nightmarish bureaucratic limbo between work, illness and benefits… forces beyond both are turning them into different people. Dan is community-minded, gentle, a laugh. At first, he’s able to criticise, even laugh at, the system that’s crushing him.

All proceeds from the film night will be going towards the sustainability of Auckland Action Against Poverty and the Auckland Women's Centre.
