My Utopia #35: Ken Loach
We spoke with director Ken Loach at Cannes film festival.
About the one big enemy, the need to fight corporate power that is destroying us all – and his personal utopia.
Kenneth Charles “Ken” Loach (born 17 June 1936) is an English director of television and independent film. He is known for his socially critical directing style and for his socialist ideals, which are evident in his film treatment of social issues such as poverty, homelessness (Cathy Come Home, 1966) and labour rights (Riff-Raff, 1991, and The Navigators, 2001).

FilmFabrique Kollektiv is a network of film-makers based in Hamburg’s Gängeviertel, a quarter run by a collective and dedicated to social and cultural initiatives. Emerging from a protest against the planned demolition of the area, the Gängeviertel is now a defining part of Hamburg’s cultural landscape – and a thriving alternative form of urban development.
