In November 2020, the idea of making a short documentary about the impact of Brexit on Brits in Belgium brought members of BABBS (the online ‘Brexit and the Belgian Brits’ community) together to crowdfund and make “Here We Are”. The film gently explores the topics of identity, belonging and reactions to loss, through personal stories. The testimonies highlight a range of emotions and consequences for European Brits flowing from Brexit. We also examine how participants remain resilient and what gives them hope going forward.
Full Circle House hosted a launch event in Brussels in October 2021 and discussions continue on issues raised by the film.
