Drama by legendary British director Ken Loach, who received two awards in Cannes. Introductory word by Filip Šimeček.

The screening will begin with a 15-minute introduction by Filip Šimeček in which he will try to answer some of the questions related to anarchism: Is anarchism a mere youth movement without a reason? Is anarchism a utopia impossible to be brought to real life?

Filip Šimeček is a teacher and publicist with views close to social anarchism. He studied pedagogy at the University of Ostrava and political science at the Palacký University in Olomouc. In his work, he draws on the traditions of constructivism and the democratic educational system, he regularly reviews books on the Lacultura.cz website, and in his novel Manifesto of (In)Adaptability he reflects on the world of wage labour in the Ostrava region.
