Postcards from the 48% (PG)

When David Nicholas Wilkinson started working on the film in 2016, many people advised him to make a ‘Soft Brexit’ film, not a ‘Stop Brexit’ one. By the time he finished shooting his last scenes as late as May 2018 however, the ‘Stop Brexit’ message did not seem quite so fanciful.

There was just one rule on the film: everyone involved in the production had to have voted Remain.

Whether people are in agreement with the message of this film or not, it speaks for 16 million people (and counting) who live in the UK. That’s more than the population of Belgium or Greece or eighteen of the other EU member states. Their voice, their preference, their mandate deserves to be heard.

After the film will be a Q&A with the director, David Nicholas Wilkinson.

Reviews

"Ian McEwan’s knowing quip about Remainers being "hobbled by a fatal attraction to rational argument" holds equally true for Wilkinson’s thoughtful, respectful, polite film. This is a valuable memorial for future generations, undoubtedly."

Arts Desk

"A deeply considered film that presents a case for questioning Brexit and the way in which it is being handled…..two moments stand out….featuring Campbell, is a dictum to the effect that we have to talk sense in order to make people see sense. That phrase sums up perfectly the modus operandi of Wilkinson’s film."
