Shayjak – On Tuesday, January 30, Filmcafé Phoenix presents a film very different from the film Triangle of Sadness that was shown in December. The December movie was about the decadence of the world’s super-rich, while the January movie was about the way people live in the world. Treated by the weakest in society and crushed by government bureaucracy.

Both films won the Palme d’Or at Cannes, but they are very different in tone. This film will likely appeal better to Filmcafé Phoenix audiences, who weren’t as excited about December as they were with the previous films.

I’m Danielle Blake
59-year-old Daniel Blake makes his living as a carpenter. Until he suffers a heart attack and has to turn to the state for the first time in his life. He is trying to work his way through a system of impersonal and bureaucratic benefits. This is certainly not easy for him… Humor, warmth and desperation go hand in hand and make I, Daniel Blake a very vibrant, poignant and powerful film.
The film takes place in the United Kingdom and was released in 2016. Unfortunately, the issue is still current, and not only in England… Of course the reality has been somewhat simplified and exaggerated here and there, but this makes the message clearer and more convincing.

Ken Loach
Renowned socialite director Ken Loach directed this film in 2016 at the age of 80. Retirement age, but Loach feels he can’t stop experiencing so much social injustice. After that, he directed two other films, the last of which was (The Old Oak), which was released in 2023.
In addition to the Palme d’Or, Daniel Blake has won numerous other awards at foreign and Dutch film festivals (including the Nordic Film Festival and the Sea Film Festival).
