Join us for a film screening and a critical debate with the director, producer and writer Annalisa Piras and executive producer Bill Emmott (former editor of The Economist), as well as Prof. Jan Kubik, director of UCL SSEES.

The authored documentary-drama is a BBC/Arte co-production, premiered on the BBC, 1 March 2015, after being bumped from the schedule for an earlier broadcasting in February. It was followed by a special discussion edition of Newsnight. The film has subsequently been transmitted in 12 countries and translated in 10 languages, including Japanese. In the UK press, the film provoked great controversy, centred on UKIP allegations that the film had been funded by EU money, and accusations that it presented pro-EU propaganda.
