Social Policy in film - 'It's a Free World' by Ken Loach (2007)
'It's a Free World' is a fictional account of two women from the East End of London, who set up an employment agency to hire migrants. The film is a realistic portrayal of the East End, with local people appearing in the film. Ken Loach's brilliant drama deals with issues of housing migration, citizenship, employment and welfare. The screening of this absorbing film will be accompanied by a debate on the issues raised.
