Imbued with the fiercely humanistic spirit that has defined Ken Loach’s filmography, The Old Oak serves as a fitting — albeit somewhat sentimental — finale to a remarkable career.

The Old Oak

24 FEBRUARY: 3 pm & 7 pm
114 Mins | UK | Drama |

VENUE: MALENY COMMUNITY CENTRE
23 MAPLE STREET MALENY 

The Old Oak takes place in a now poverty-stricken, formerly affluent and vibrant, coal mining village in Northeast England, where Syrian refugees from persecution by the Assad regime have been relocated by the British Government. The film focuses on the ultimately successful efforts of T J Ballantyne, landlord of the last remaining village pub, The Old Oak, to bring the splintered community together. Starring Dave Turner (I, Daniel Blake), written by BAFTA winning Paul Laverty and brilliantly directed by the veteran British film-maker, Ken Loach, responsible for over 50 much loved, critically lauded and influential films from Kes to I, Daniel Blake, this heart-warming, inspiring, spiritually-refreshing, story of the triumph of people power, hope and determination over adversity is destined to take its place as a classic of World Cinema.
