CGiii Comment

An intriguing post-Brexit British drama.

Katie (Emma Friedman-Cohen), a young American documentarian, casts a Polish woman in her film about the life of migrants in London after the Brexit referendum. Her only instruction as director to Alicja (Aneta Piotrowska) is: “Act as if I’m not here.” However, as their relationship develops it becomes clear that all is not what it seems in Alicja’s life, and this would-be actor’s interest in both film and Katie deepens. The documentary soon becomes the narrative of a questionable game in which the two women challenge each other.
