Brexitannia | Trailer from STEREOTACTIC on Vimeo.
On or off. Yes or no. Leave or remain. Referendums divide and Brexit did so in a way never before in British history. Country versus city. Old versus young. Nationalists versus migrants. “The people” versus “the elite”. The forgotten versus the visible. Underneath all these definitions are individuals with their own unique stories that motivated this historic and at times perplexing vote, a vote motivated by the themes of our age; migration, waning empires, and the white elephant in the room; work and it’s decreasing relevance in an ever automated world. Brexitannia is a portrait of a democracy in all it’s impossible ugly glory.
