Israeli politics shine no light on the darkness of oppression.

Loach made Kes, in the late 1960s, which was given a limited U.S. release in 1973. The poster above highlights Loach's focus on the oppressed early in his career. The Israel Lobby knew of Loach's political passion, which could account for its limited exposure. Roger Ebert loved Kes and wrote a review which listed the honors it received in England.

In the event that the movie's name doesn't exactly sound familiar, I should add that 'Kes' won the 1970 British Academy Award, as England's best film of the year. It picked up a lot of other honors, too, including the grand prize at Edinburgh and lots of praise at the 1970 New York Film Festival. But it was never released commercially in America.
