North American Premiere

Narrative Feature | UK | 2023 | English | 113 minutes

Legendary, two-time Palme d’Or-winning British director Ken Loach (I, DANIEL BLAKE, SORRY WE MISSED YOU) returns to HIFF with what may be his final film, a timely and deeply affecting drama set in a once-thriving mining village in northern England. The Old Oak is the last pub standing, a gathering space for a community that has fallen on hard times. When a group of Syrian refugees arrive in the village, a decisive rift fueled by prejudices develops between the community and its newest inhabitants. Poignant and stirring, THE OLD OAK is a quietly moving film about loss, fear, and the difficulty of finding hope. A Kino Lorber release.
