Sorry We Missed You

Ricky and his family 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. It’s hard work, and his wife’s job as a carer is no easier. The family unit is strong but when both are pulled in different directions everything comes to breaking point.

Rigourously researched via off-the-records interviews, Sorry We Missed You depicts the ruinous cost of zero-hours contract with gut-wrenching honest and integrity. A furious and heart-breaking film, it offers a rigourous and damning critique of our unequal system; showing how it unscrupulously exploits people, especially those from lower socio-economic backgrounds, and robs them of dignity, agency and hope for change.

Please note: The screening of Sorry We Missed You taking place on Fri 1 Nov, 6pm, will include a post-screening with Bread and Roses + guests and will begin screening promptly at 6pm.

Director Ken Loach will be at Derby Film Festival at 6pm on Thursday 14 November to discuss his career alongside a screening of this film. Click here for more info.
