After his Festival de Cannes’ premiere, Ken Loach has just presented his latest film, Sorry We Missed You to the Italian audience as it will be in italian cinema theatres with Lucky Red distribution from January 2nd on. Despite the title which refers to the message couriers and drivers leave at a person when they can’t find them to pick up their package, the film deals with the absence of parents, the loneliness men and women feel when their life becomes all about their job and survival. Ken Loach gives once again a voice to over-exploited workers, not only drivers in his country, England, but people all over the world who feel they can’t get out of a vicious circle. The younger generations are our only hope, Ken Loach declares, especially when it comes to climate change problems. Greta Thunberg facing Trump is one great example of what young people can do if they only understand how much power they have to really change our world.

Sorry We Missed You: From director Ken Loach and the award-winning team behind I, Daniel Blake, comes Sorry We Missed You – a powerful exploration of the contemporary world of work, the gig economy and the challenges faced by one family trying to hold it all together.
