the old oak

Friday 29 September – Thursday 12 October, 2023

Captions and audio description available

After premiering to a sold-out audience earlier this month, GFT is delighted to be welcoming Ken Loach‘s powerful latest feature, The Old Oak, back to GFT.

The Old Oak is a special place. Not only is it the last pub standing, but it’s also the only remaining public space where people can meet in a once-thriving mining community that has seen 30 hard years of decline. TJ Ballantyne, the landlord, hangs on to The Old Oak by his fingertips, and his predicament is endangered even more when the pub becomes contested territory after the arrival of Syrian refugees who are placed in the village without any notice.

In an unlikely friendship, TJ meets a curious young Syrian woman, Yara, who has a camera. Can they find a way for the two communities to understand each other?
