THE OLD OAK PUB
By: Ken Loach; Starring: Debbie Honeywood, Dave Turner, Ebla Mari, Trevor Fox
“If you choose the right story, you gain a profound insight into how the world works” said the doyen Ken Loach, who does not give up on the practice of politically conscious and socially interventionist cinema, focused on the fragile experience of the working class. He chose the story of TJ Ballantyne (Dave Turner), who fights to keep open his pub, the “Old Oak”, the last place to hang out in a deprived mining community in the north of England. The arrival of a group of Syrian refugees ignites racial tensions, but TJ's unexpected friendship with young Yara (Ebla Mari) gives rise to hope for a more united and bright future.
