'POSTCARDS FROM THE 48% TO DEBUT AT EDINBURGH INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL.
Christopher composed the original score for the political documentary, directed by David Wilkinson which will premiere on 23rd June. www.postcards48.eu
 
“Director David Wilkinson’s challenging – and prescient – film has no qualms about its stance and what it is trying to achieve. As a remainer, Wilkinson travels the UK to gather and represent the opinions of the 48% of people who voted to stay in the EU. Interviewees include Miriam Margolyes, Professor A.C. Grayling and Baroness Wheatcroft, all of whom offer eloquent, thoughtful and passionate opinions. The referendum may well be over, but Wilkinson wants the debate to continue.”

Press reviews mentioning the score:
 
"Complete with a brooding, gentle score which compliments the film well." Hey U Guys Read:
 
"Christopher Barnett's score for the film is also the perfect compliment for the film's story. Understated and twinkling like a children's music box, it almost feels like it mirrors the child-like mind of Kevin who's inadvertently found himself in this precarious position." So So Gay Magazine
