Ken Loach Receives Honorary Doctorate From Coventry University

By -

Nuneaton-born Loach is globally renowned for his gritty, hard-hitting style of cinema which explores class society in the UK, and on Monday 17th November, during the Art and Design graduation received an honorary doctorate of arts in recognition of his contribution to the British film industry.

He is known for his naturalistic, social realist directing style and for his socialism, which are evident in his film treatment of social issues such as homelessness (Cathy Come Home) and labour rights (Riff-Raff and The Navigators).
