In The Guardian, Guild member Paul Laverty talks about the issues behind It's A Free World, the film that he scripted and Ken Loach directed, about migrant workers in the UK. It's A Free World is on Channel 4 tonight at 9pm.
We tell our story from the viewpoint of Kierston Wareing's Angie, who opens an employment agency in the hinterland of "illegality lite". Despite their "deep concern", our supermarkets depend on the Angies of this world to lubricate the long lines of subcontracts until brutality is safely over the horizon. Ken Loach, the director, imagined that Angie might one day be businesswoman of the year.
