From award-winning writer-director Peter Kosminsky (THE GOVERNMENT INSPECTOR) comes the politically-charged drama BRITZ. The film explores Muslim life in Britain through the eyes of a brother and sister on opposite sides of the same coin. Sohail (Riz Ahmed THE ROAD TO GUANTANAMO) wants nothing more than to fit in with British society while his sister Nasima (Manjinder Virk BRADFORD RIOTS) finds herself increasingly alienated and victimised by the government. Sohails eagerness to assimilate sees him recruited by MI5 to investigate his family and friends putting the siblings on a head-on collision course. The films topical and controversial subject matter is sure to spark some heated debate over Britains anti-terror laws and so-called Islamophobia.
