There is currently a Ken Loach film festival at the Filmhuis in The Hague, which lasts until 18 December and then will travel to other Dutch cities. Films such as the classic Kes (1970) and the more recent My name is Joe (1998) focus on people struggling with difficult circumstances and the impact of economic and social realities beyond their control. This is a great opportunity to see the work of the UK’s foremost socialist realist independent film maker. Several films such as Sweet Sixteen, The Navigators and The Wind That Shakes the Barley (2006), winner of the Palme d’Or at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival, will be screened during the coming week and weekend.
