The Speakeasy and the New Zealand Human Rights Commission are coming together once again to host a special free preview screening of I, Daniel Blake.
Join us at 6:00pm at the Lighthouse Cuba where we can catch up, have a drink, and talk about the movie at hand, which starts at 6:30pm.
Winner of this years Palme d'Or award at Cannes, the film follows its titular charachter as he finds himself caught on the barbed wire of welfare bureaucracy as played out against the rhetoric of ‘striver and skiver’ in modern day Britain.

"This film intervenes in the messy, ugly world of poverty with the secular intention of making us see that it really is happening, and in a prosperous nation, too. I, Daniel Blake is a movie with a fierce, simple dignity of its own." - The Guardian
