A complex and gripping encounter with some of Britain’s so-called extremists and a rigorous meditation on the nature of free speech.

In 2015, the British government issued a press release calling for universities to do more to tackle extremism. The document identified six men as examples of ‘radical’ speakers who have expressed views that are ‘contrary to British values’ and who should therefore be silenced. Unspeakable is a hybrid documentary that combines interview, performance and image to tell the stories of three of these men. The result is a complex and gripping encounter with some of Britain’s so-called extremists and a rigorous meditation on the nature of free speech.
