The third in VFD’s new series of film nights looking at various relevant social & cultural issues. On the 2nd of September we will be looking at the mainstream media’s portrayal of Brexit voters & its influence over the masses. Screening on the night will be Sheena Sumaria's 'Why we voted leave: voices from northern England' (Guerrera Films - http://www.guerrerafilms.com/). The short follows social worker Sheena Moore in her hometown, the ex-mining village of Stainforth, as she goes round the village asking people how they voted & why. What we see isn’t a town full of bigoted, uneducated idiots, but real people that have been neglected by a broken system & used their democratic power to impose change.

In contrary to this we will show a couple of clips from popular media outlets which depict those who voted to leave as small minded & bigoted white people. Do these organisations go in with an agenda & by focusing on a minority skew the perception of their audience? In a Kardashian-worshipping, Snapchat-obsessed, narcissistic culture, are popular news outlets the new opium of the masses? Come to VFD to find out (obviously).
