We are delighted to partner with Barnardos Scotland to present a special screening of Sorry We Missed You, directed by Ken Loach and the award-winning team behind I, Daniel Blake. The film is 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.
The 2008 financial crash cost Ricky, a father of two, both his work in construction and his mortgage – but a better future may be around the corner. When a promising opportunity as a freelance delivery driver presents itself, Ricky persuades his wife Abby, who works as a carer for the elderly, to sell the car she uses to rush from “client” to “client” to finance the van’s purchase.
Sorry We Missed You is both an intimate family drama and an angry, meticulously researched indictment of a callous, inhumane economic system. This screening marks Challenge Poverty Week 2021 and will be followed by a live Q&A with representatives of Barndardos to talk about their involvement behind the scenes in the preparatory work for the film’s production and to discuss issues raised by the film.
