VERSUS presents a surprisingly candid behind-the-scenes account of Ken Loach’s career as he prepared to release his latest feature film I, DANIEL BLAKE. Director Louise Osmond was granted exclusive access on set and uses this as a starting point to look at Loach’s career, from his first job as understudy in a Kenneth Williams revue to groundbreaking TV dramas like Up The Junction and Cathy Come Home and later as an award- winning feature director of films like Kes, Riff-Raff, The Wind That Shakes the Barley, and The Angels’ Share. As well as interviews with Loach, Osmond talks with a host of his friends, adversaries, actors and collaborators. VERSUS is more than just a document of Loach’s work but a playful study on the process and struggles of creating such a unique body of work. I, DANIEL BLAKE won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival.
