The first film on Brexit gives the floor to the people of Brexitannia, whose screenings will mark one year to go until the official EU withdrawal date in March 2019.  

On/off. Yes/no. Leave or Remain? While referenda always divide people, Brexit did so in a manner unprecedented in modern British history: old pitted against young, nationalists against migrants, the countryside against the city, and “the people” against “the elite”. But underneath these binaries we find human beings whose individual stories influenced the outcome of this historic and perplexing vote. In the referendum the UK was torn apart by debates over the great themes of our age: migration, waning empires, work and its decreasing relevance in an outsourced world that is becoming ever more automated.

BREXITANNIA is a portrait of a democracy in all its impossible and ugly glory. With subtle force, yet without judgement, it presents the people of a once powerful empire as they negotiate their identities in a world that is changing faster than ever and in which power appears to lie further and further from people’s own hands.

“A timely attempt to understand the deeper feelings and wider issues behind the British decision to leave the European Union. Fascinating as a state of the nation snapshot...” Screen Daily

“Shot in black and white and divided into two chapters, Brexitannia challenges the simplistic, binary notions associated with the vote” Dazed Digital (Six Fearless New Documentaries You Need to See)

Right Now Film Festival returns to independent cinemas across the UK between the 21st - 27th of March with a programme of six feature-length documentaries. From the beginning of vital movements such as Black Lives Matter to the future of welfare and the UK’s very own Brexit, our films explore the motives and truths behind global systems and address unjust balances of power. These are stories that may not be typically covered by mainstream cinema, brought to screens across the country in order to reach and challenge audiences.
