Trailer: Cannes Winner “I, Daniel Blake”

Various films seemed to draw a lot of attention at the Cannes Film Festival this year, and looked to be serious competitors including Andrea Arnold’s “American Honey,” Jim Jarmusch’s “Paterson” and Maren Ade’s “Toni Erdmann”.

However it was Ken Loach’s “I, Daniel Blake” which walked away with the Palme d’Or despite not receiving as strong acclaim as some other projects. Now the trailer for the project has gone online.

Dave Johns, Hayley Squires, Dylan McKiernan, Briana Shann, Kate Rutter, Sharon Percy, Kema Sikazwe star in the story of a man who navigates the dehumanizing social welfare system, and strikes up a friendship with a single mother.

The film opens in the U.K. on October 21st before hitting the U.S. through Sundance Selects.
