NO matter what your stance, Brexit is undoubtedly the key issue facing the country today.

Now, the first feature length Brexit documentary is to play at The Light Cinema Bolton on Valentine’s Day at 7.30pm.

Brexitannia will feature Noam Chomsky and there will also be a question and answer session with director Timothy George Kelly and poet, local Bolton resident and participant in the film, Ibby.

Brexit is described as the most momentous event in modern British history and Brexitannia presents a complex panorama of 50 leavers and remainers from across the UK. Shot in black and white, the documentary gives an insightful, and at times uncomfortable, portrait of Britain today.

The film, which has played over 35 international film festivals, ends with a sobering analysis from theorists including Noam Chomsky, Saskia Sassen and Nick Srnicek.

Director Timothy George Kelly said: “We tried to follow actual statistical demographics of the country to attempt a truthful as possible portrait of the nation.

“It can be easily argued that documenting a national identity is impossible in its complexity and maybe I agree, but the one thing we were able to capture successfully was that feeling of the moment and all its shock, beauty and humour.

“Over the six months that followed the referendum I interviewed 106 people all over the UK and 50 ended up in the final cut. I consider the film more a study of humans than of politics.”

Annabelle Luce, marketing manager at the Light Cinema Bolton, said: “We are thrilled to be one of the few sites showcasing this amazing film depicting one of the most significant choices in modern British and democratic history.

“The Light Cinema Bolton is all about being a part of the community and for us this is a great way to show it.

“We hope that everyone is just as excited as we are about this, as it will be a great evening.”

Timothy is an Australian artist and filmmaker whose work often intersects between art, music and politics. His music videos and documentaries have seen him collaborate with a number of artists and musicians.

He has lived in London for five years and Brexitannia is his second feature length documentary.

He was also the cinematographer on the film. It was given a special mention at Reykjavik International Film Festival “for its multifaceted look at a major political event, using the voices of voters to tell a tale both unsettling and refreshingly free from the usual bombast of political discourse”. The film shows on February 14 at 7.30pm. Details from www.bolton.
