Stories That Matter 2018 | Brexitannia
Dir. Timothy George Kelly | 80min | 2017 | PG13
Why did Britain decide to leave the EU? In this first film about Brexit, London-based Australian filmmaker turns the camera on the ordinary citizens of Britain to find out the motivations behind the most polarizing development in the country’s modern history. From urbanites to farmers, the young and old, elite and disenfranchised, the film surveys both sides of the debate, resulting in a diversity of opinion that is humorous and sobering in turns.
What emerges is a portrait of a nation that is grasping for its identity, but fractured along class, ideological, and geographical lines. In its simple, no-holds-barred approach, Brexitannia illustrates the battle against uncertainty in these tumultuous times.
Dir. Poulomi Basu | 3:28min | PG13
The Kashmiri Pundit festival of Kheer Bhawani brings Muslims and Hindus (Pundits) together in the spirit of tolerance and brotherhood. The festival has withstood the forced migration of the Pundits and even continued uninterrupted throughout the peak of militancy in 1998.
