KES

One of the most beloved and iconic British films of all time (voted in the top 10 of all time by the British Film Institute), Ken Loach’s breakthrough cinematic feature ‘Kes’ is a cornerstone of naturalistic film-making whose influence is felt up to the present day.

Portraying with remarkable detail and empathy the day-to-day existence of a working class 15-year-old boy in Barnsley, played by David Bradley, and the profound change that the rearing of a kestral brings to his otherwise troubled home life, ‘Kes’ has enchanted generations of viewers since its release in 1969.
