Even Dwarfs Started Small
  • 1970
  • Germany
  • 96 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Werner Herzog

  • Cast: Helmut Döring

Herzog's brilliantly bizarre parable about a remote penal colony inhabited by dwarfs, who stage a revolution in the prison warden's absence. This has to be seen to be believed, unmissable.

I, Daniel Blake

I, Daniel Blake
  • 2016
  • UK/France
  • 100 min
  • Directed by: Ken Loach
  • Cast: Dave Johns, Hayley Squires

Newly widowed Newcastle joiner Daniel (Johns) has worked all his life, but when his doctor tells him that his heart condition means he can't work, the welfare system disagrees. Familiar territory for Loach and screenwriter Laverty but despite unapologetic heartstring-tugging, the subject – the system's intrinsic cruelty and unfairness – is sadly more relevant than ever.
