On Thursday 9th March we will be hosting a screening of I, Daniel Blake in our group room.
This is supported by the Hackney Peoples Assembly who have purchased the film on our behalf. We want to give our local community residents the opportunity to view and voice their opinions in a safe place on the devestating effects the devolution of Hackney is having on local communities, resulting in benefit sanction, evictions etc.
This is open to all clients, staff, and friends of Off Centre. We have limited seating of around 30 places.The film sypnopsis:
“Daniel Blake (59) has worked as a joiner most of his life in Newcastle. Now, for the first time ever, he needs help from the State. He crosses paths with single mother Katie and her two young children, Daisy and Dylan. Katie’s only chance to escape a one-roomed homeless hostel in London has been to accept a flat in a city she doesn’t know, some 300 miles away.
Daniel and Katie find themselves in no-man’s land, caught on the barbed wire of welfare bureaucracy as played out against the rhetoric of ‘striver and skiver’ in modern-day Britain.”
This is free but there is a suggested donation of £2 for those who can afford it.
When: Thursday 9th March, 6.30pm
Where: Off Centre, Units 1-3, 68-72 Digby Road, London, E9 6HX
