Ken Loach - In Conversation

If your have an hour to spare you could do a lot worse than spend it watching Ken Loach in conversation with Cillian Murphy.

I was lucky enough to hear him once when he was a guest at the annual LSE SCR Dinner. He talked for 10 minutes or so about his career and then took questions for more than an hour. It was absolutely spell-binding. Modesty, simplicity, humanity and idealism  One of the giants of British cinema who has had to struggle to get almost all of his movies into production and in some cases fight again to get them distributed and shown.
