Black Jack (1979)

On 21 June, the BFI is proud to present the world premiere of Ken Loach’s director’s cut of Black Jack (1979). Available for the first time on DVD in the UK, this ‘lost’ Loach also features a director’s commentary recorded exclusively for the BFI.

Based on Leon Garfield’s popular novel, this long-unseen film adaptation from the celebrated British filmmaker is an adventure story which will capture the imagination of adults and children alike. It features Chris Menges’ beautiful photography, enchanting performances by its charismatic young cast and Loach’s gentle, observational style – similarly seen in his earlier feature Kes (1969).
