Our second in the series ‘Thinking Allowed’ 2 speakers debate over 1 question, this time can there be ‘good’ and ‘bad’ nationalism?

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Annalisa Piras and executive producer Bill Emmott.
Following the success of Girlfriend in a Coma, director Annalisa Piras brings us an artfully constructed depiction of how Europe is sleepwalking toward disaster, starring Angus Deayton in fiction scenes from a post-EU future. Piras pairs an imagined view from a dystopian future with insightful analysis on how and why things are going so wrong by ordinary Europeans and economic and political experts.
