“Brexitannia is a timely attempt to understand the deeper feelings and wider issues behind the British decision to leave the European Union." - Screen International
“Brexitannia is a beautifully crafted, sobering snapshot of a country in turmoil. The first documentary about Brexit, Brexitannia challenges the caricatures often used to demonize Leave and Remain voters and brings into focus several other dividing lines – the gulf between country and city, young and old, migration, automation, globalization, and British identity." - The PanEuropean
With a subtle, yet explosively insightful approach, the film continues to reflect on how previous ideologies shifted into dichotomies of class warfare. It explores the unique stories of individuals who motivated the historic and perplexing vote, a vote that speaks volumes about waning empires and the shrinking power of labor in an increasingly automated global economy.
Brexitannia is an uncompromising portrait of a democracy in a state of panic. Without judgment, it presents the story of a people, once belonging to a powerful empire, now negotiating their faltering identity around erratic, often inscrutable, notions of change.
