New Notions proudly presents this Irish premiere screening of the first documentary about Brexit. We will be joined by the film's director Timothy George Kelly via Skype. You will have the opportunity to ask him questions.
Brexitannia is a portrayal of “beautiful, ordinary people, full of contradictions" from the north, the south, Wales, Northern Ireland, Scotland to Noam Chomsky and covering everything from sheep tags and automation to the EU regulations on cucumbers.
In the wake of the most momentous event in modern British history, Brexitannia presents a complex panorama of fifty Leavers and Remainers from across the UK. Renewing the art of documentary interview, Timothy George Kelly’s meticulous black-and-white framing and sensitive portrayals of ordinary Britons gives an insightful and at times uncomfortable portrait of Britain today. The film ends with a sobering analysis from theorists including Noam Chomsky, Saskia Sassen and Nick Srnicek.
Presented in collaboration with IMAGINE! Festival of Ideas and Politics.
