Brexitannia

Synopsis: 

The first film about Brexit gives the floor to both the victorious 'people' and Noam Chomsky, in a both (tragi)comic, contradictory and disturbing voxpop.

 

Leave or Remain? Last summer's completely unexpected Brexit not only divided Britain into two irreconcilable camps. Rural and urban, old and young, nationalists and migrants – and not least the 'people' versus the 'elite'. But behind the many differences is a common reality, where every vote counts. This is also true in 'Brexitannia', the first film about Brexit, and a film that simply gives the floor to the people themselves. In (tragi)comic, angry, absurd and revealing scenes we meet the winners of the election one by one in a panoramic fresco, where pure British social realism meets sociological analysis in a cinematic framing.   But it isn't all as black and white as the images in Timothy George Kelly's film, where also experts have something to say: Noam Chomsky gives us his wise explanation of the complex reasons for the shocking result. A phenomenon like Brexit is not just about national pride and cultural identity, but just as much about an international reality, where the future is just as uncertain as the outcome of the next election.
