The State of the World

Brexitannia Timothy George Kelly

Film index A to Z

On June 26, 2016, Brexit rocked Great Britain, Europe and the West, and signalled the unpredictability of modern elections. Using black and white footage and static shots, Timothy George Kelly takes a minimalist approach to unpack a complex situation. In the first part, men and woman talk about the reasons for voting as they did. In the second part, experts provide analysis and other perspectives on the debate. Each person’s words and the ways they answer or evade questions reveal fault lines, worries and frustrations, as well as the personal element that statistics can’t show. Without passing judgment, Brexitannia exposes the paradoxes of democracy.

Presented in collaboration with the Centre for the Study of Democratic Citizenship (CSDC)
