Ken Loach scooped his second Palme d'Or with "I, Daniel Blake", a portrait of an ailing carpenter facing the bureaucracy of the healthcare system in today's Britain. Close to 100,000 euros were invested in the development and the distribution stages of this film. This is the 15th Palme d'Or awarded to a film supported by MEDIA since 1991, as the programme celebrates this year its 25 anniversary.
