KEN LOACH

-
Ken Loach is Britain's most renowned and most controversial director of socially conscious television drama. He is also an internationally acclaimed maker of feature films whose radical political messages consistently provoke strong responses in audiences and politicians alike. In 1965 he received the British Television Guild's "TV Director of the Year" Award, while the 1990s have brought prizes and nominations at the Cannes Film Festival. His considerable body of work, documenting British society since the 1960s, is an acknowledged source of inspiration to his contemporaries.

Loach's film work is characterised by a particular view of realism; he strives in every area of filmmaking to emphasise genuine interplay between actors, to the point where some scenes in his films are unscripted. Rather than employing method actors, he prefers unknown talent who have had some of the actual life experience of the characters they portray - so much so that many professional actors aspiring to work with Loach will often pretend to be actual construction labourers or other working class types called for in his script. For Bread and Roses, he chose two leading actors who had experience of union organizing and life as an immigrant. The lead actress in the film, Pilar Padilla, actually had to learn English in order to play the part.

Ken Loach
was born on 17 June 1936 in Nuneaton, Warwickshire. The son of an electrician, he attended grammar school in Nuneaton and after two years of National Service studied Law at Oxford University, where he was President of the Dramatic Society. After university he briefly pursued an acting career before turning to directing, joining Northampton Repertory Theatre as an assistant director in 1961 and then moving to the BBC as a trainee television director in 1963.
Loach
's first directorial assignment was a thirty-minute drama written by Roger Smith (who worked as story editor on Loach's early Wednesday Plays and was still collaborating with him over thirty years later). In 1964 he also directed episodes of Z Cars (BBC, 1962-78), which taught Loach the difficulties of directing live television drama, and Diary Of A Young Man (BBC), which enabled him to see the possibilities film afforded to get out of the studio and onto the streets. Diary also used non-naturalistic elements, such as stills sequences cut to music and a narrational voiceover, in its attempt to achieve a new kind of narrative drama and Loach was to incorporate some of these innovations into his early Wednesday Plays. http://www.screenonline.org.uk/people/id/458945/

My comrades had a party, and we showed "Land and Freedom." There is a scene where they are discussing expropriating land. You see every tendency, ultra leftism, oppurtunism, adventurism etc. That movie is loosely based on Geo. Orwell's "Homage To Catalona."
