Timothy George Kelly | United Kingdom, Russia 2017 | 80 Min. | OmeU
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.
