THE Marine Theatre in Lyme Regis will screen anti-Brexit film ‘Postcards from the 48%’, presented by its director David Wilkinson and writer Emlyn Price.
The film is made by and features those who voted Remain in the UK’s EU Referendum, to show the other 27 EU Member States that they believe it was far from a landslide victory. It states the case for why they are fighting to stay part of the EU.
The film argues that, despite both sides having been widely accused of relying on partial information, neither side presented precise information. It concludes that voters used personal emotion or partially informed preference as a basis for voting.
The film stars Joan Bakewell, Catherine Bearder, Vince Cable, Ruth Cadbury, Alastair Campbell, Rachel Clarke, Nick Clegg, Mark Constantine, Andrew Cook, Mark Durkan, Bob Geldof, AC Grayling, Bonnie Greer, Will Hutton, Rachel Johnson, Matt Kelly, Helena Kennedy, and Miriam Margolyes.
The film screening will be followed by a question and answer session with the director and writer, chaired by Anthea Simmons of Devon For Europe.
Theatre manager Sophia Moseley said: “We’re not a political organisation and we provide entertainment for people from all backgrounds. “This event is open to those from both sides of the Brexit debate – and everyone who attends will have a chance to voice their opinion.”
The screening and talk will be held on Thursday, August 30 with doors opening at 6.30pm for a 7.30pm start. Tickets cost £6 in advance or £8 on the door, with a 10 per cent discount for Theatre Friends.
