Ken Loach returns to the Lumière festival

Laureate of the Lumière Award in 2012, and since crowned with a second Palme d’Or, Ken Loach comes back to Lyon for an exceptional – and political – meeting with the public, and the premiere of his new movie, Sorry We Missed You, selected for competition at the Cannes Film Festival this year.

Sorry We Missed You by Ken Loach (2019, 1h40)
Ricky becomes an “independent contractor,” a delivery man for the gig economy, in order to provide for his family. The apparent utopia of today’s “opportunities” soon turns into an unmanageable, complicated and harmful mess. The film illustrates a family’s struggle in the face of the violence of liberalism.
