Join us on Wednesday 13 December at Cinecenter Amsterdam for a drinks reception and film preview of The Old Oak.
The Old Oak is the story of a village in the Northeast of England, where the mine closed, and people feel deserted by the system. Many young ones have left and what was once a thriving, proud community struggles to keep old values alive. But there is growing anger, resentment, and a lack of hope. Houses are cheap and available. This makes it an ideal location for the Syrian refugees that have been accepted by Britain in recent years. How will the Syrians be received? And what will be the future for the last remaining pub in the village, The Old Oak?
The Old Oak is the new film by two-time Palme d'Or winner Ken Loach (I, Daniel Blake, Sorry We Missed You). The British filmmaker once again delivers a strong social drama set in the working class of contemporary England. It is a sincere, hopeful and topical film.
