We disagree constantly: about how to shape our society, about the relation between freedom and security, about degrees of individuality and solidarity. Polarisation instead of debate, taking sides instead of engagement. Fifty years after the struggles for personal liberties and free expression of 1968 we have handed over our societal standards and values to populists and social media filter bubbles. But we need to disagree, to argue: to listen, pause, reconsider, and then speak – and at the same time resist the assault on progressive achievements. This triangle programme from the UK, Austria and Spain takes a look at three European countries in turmoil. 

National identity is a delicate concept, founded on tolerance and compromise between diverse, often competing groups. What does it mean for already marginalised communities to find their exclusion from a romantic narrative of nationhood endorsed by referendum?

Programme 1: The Will of the People is curated by Glasgow Short Film Festival.
