As part of the London Short Film Festival, national newspaper The Guardian joined forces with Headlong Theatre to create short dramas set across the UK, to depict the divided opinion over Brexit and how so many have been affected in such different ways since the referendum.

You may be thinking that groups such as these might use the medium of film to put forward their own agenda - but this certainly not the case. Famous faces litter the shorts, including Kristen Scott Thomas, Meera Syal and Penelope Wilton, each sharing a view of the world which is not as simple as a one-sided agenda.

The first of in Dramas From A Divided Nation, Time to Leave, written by David Hare and performed by Scott Thomas, described a woman's anguish at how her Leave vote has not led to quite the triumphant departure she had longed for, while The Kumar's at No.42 star Meera Syal's Just A T-Shirt, which she wrote and performed, described how her character, despite voting Leave, became a victim of racism post-referendum.

One of the most heartbreaking shorts was Go Home, written by Charlene James and starring Dean Fagan. Here, the protagonist describes how he and his girlfriend were happy, until she discovered he had voted to leave to European Union, and suddenly she was unwilling to answer the phone to him. He described how she had called a Leave voter "scum" but how, in his hometown, the feelings are completely different.

The effects of the "echo-chamber" were truly considered, as many of the characters described how their communities felt similarly to them on these issues. In Burn, written by James Graham and starring The Thick of It's Joanna Scanlan, the antagonist takes this one step further and describes her love of trolling Remain voters, asking others of a like mind to help cook up new and shocking ways to bring them down.

The collection spotlighted Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish voters as well, with The Pines by Gary Owen being spoken entirely in Welsh by its protagonist, a dairy farmer played by Gavin and Stacey's Steffan Rhodri.

Each of the films took the form of a monologue as they lived normally in their surroundings, giving the audience a slice of their home lives along with their feelings on how the vote has and will affect them. It felt as if Alan Bennet's Talking Heads had been translated into a new political context, and each was beautifully poignant in its portrayal of new and sometimes misunderstood perspectives.

The festival continues until this weekend with a whole host of programmes to see.
