Amid a slew of personality-led documentaries heading to the European Film Market in Berlin, including Maradona and films on Oasis and Usain Bolt, another new title hoping to attract buyers sees filmmakers turn the cameras on one of their own.
Vs. The Life and Films of Ken Loach, directed by Louise Osmond (Dark Horse, Deep Water), is set to be a “funny, provocative and revealing account” of the career of one of the U.K.’s foremost filmmakers. The film will look at Loach — winner of the honorary Golden Bear in Berlin in 2014 — as he turns 80 and reflects on half a century of filmmaking that has included the likes of Kes, Hidden Agenda, Land and Freedom and The Wind That Shakes The Barley.
The film is being produced by Rebecca O’Brien for Loach’s Sixteen Films and exec produced by Lizzie Francke for the BFI, and Christine Langan and Joe Oppenheimer for BBC Films.
