AN acclaimed director will be visiting a North-East venue for a screening of his latest film, which will be followed by a question and answer session.

Filmmaker Ken Loach will be attending the showing of his latest production Sorry We Missed You, which will be screened at Durham Miners' Hall at Redhills, Durham on Thursday, December 5.

The two-time Palme D’Or winner will then take part in a question and answer session with members of the audience.

Sorry We Missed You has been billed as an exploration of the contemporary world of work, the gig economy and the challenges facing one family.

Set in Newcastle, the film by writer Paul Laverty and the team behind I, Daniel Blake, is both a family drama and a critique of the economic system.

Proceeds from ticket sales will go towards the Redhills Appeal, which is aimed at raising £5m to secure the future of the historic building as a cultural venue for County Durham's former mining communities.

The screening will begin at 7pm.

Doors open at 6pm and refreshments will be served in the committee room.

The 15-rated film runs for 100mins and will be followed by the question and answer session.
