On Thursday the 20th of April we hosted a Q&A with the filmmakers. Hosted by Laura Stahnke.

Against the backdrop of the UK’s hardening immigration policy, director Mira Erdevički follows the lives of three Roma: Petr Torák, Denisa Gannon and Ondrej Oláh.

Settled in the UK over 20 years ago, the trio still feel attached to their native Slovakia and the Czech Republic. As the country goes into lockdown, they film their lives throughout the Covid pandemic and the aftermath of Brexit to form this quietly radical and heart-warming film about identity and finding home.

Leaving to Remain offers something completely new: a compelling and nuanced portrayal of Roma which raises questions about the identity of post-Brexit Britain
