*This screening will be followed by a short audience-led discussion on the challenges posed by the EU Referendum with special guests including Ian Hudghton MEP. *

Ahead of a critical referendum on UK membership of the EU, Democracy, in association with Take One Action Film Festival, takes you backstage at the European Parliament, to follow the fate of a hotly-contested piece of legislation on Data Protection. As he battles lobbyists and obfuscation, Jan Albrecht, the young and seemingly naïve green MEP in charge of the new bill, proves a quietly tenacious opponent. Shot over two years, this is a subtle and powerful exploration of democracy at work.
