Sorry We Missed You

Sorry We Missed you - Showing in Churches across the Durham Diocese


From director Ken Loach, writer Paul Laverty and the award-winning team behind I, DANIEL BLAKE, comes SORRY WE MISSED YOU - a powerful exploration of the contemporary world of work, the gig economy and the challenges faced by one family trying to hold it all together.

The film, starring Kris Hitchen, Debbie Honeywood, Rhys Stone and Katie Proctor, tells the story of Ricky and his family who have been fighting an uphill struggle against debt since the 2008 financial crash. An opportunity to wrestle back some independence appears with a shiny new van and the chance to run a franchise as a self-employed delivery driver.

Sorry We Missed You is both an intimate family drama and an angry, meticulously researched indictment of a callous, inhumane economic system.

Over the next few months, we hope there can be opportunities to see Ken Loach's critically acclaimed and Bafta nominated film at special screenings in churches in the following towns around the Durham diocese:


Hartlepool (St Columbas Church, 19th February 7pm)

At each showing there will be opportunities to reflect on the issues this film raises and develop responses to them
