Ken Loach in conversation with Paul Laverty at TPFF. A rabble.ca exclusive video

On September 16th, the Toronto Palestine Film Festival (TPFF) hosted a conversation between director Ken Loach (Land and Freedom, Wind That Shakes the Barley, Route Irish) and author Paul Laverty (Looking for Eric, Sweet Sixteen, Carla's Song, Even the Rain).  TPFF Festival Coordinator, Rafeef Ziadah, moderated the conversation with Loach and Laverty as they reflected on their recent works and the challenges they face in making films that tackle highly politicized issues in the Middle East.

Their conversation was filmed for rabble.ca by Anita Krajnc.
