It was one of the momentous events of modern British History, and now the referendum which decided Britain’s future relationship with the European Union is the subject of a new documentary film which takes a look at the world the Brexit vote left behind. It’s set to show at Tyneside Cinema on Monday 12th February.

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. The film has played over 35 international film festivals, so this screening in Newcastle is a must see.

Brexitannia screens at Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle on Monday 12th February.
