Deep State, 2012

Directed Karen Mirza & Brad Butler in collaboration with China Miéville (45 mins Cert: 12A)

The film takes its title from the Turkish term ‘Derin Devlet’, meaning ‘state within the state’. This shadowy nexus of special interests and covert relationships is the place where real power is said to reside, and where fundamental decisions are made – decisions that often run counter to the outward impression of democracy. Deep State is commissioned by Film and Video Umbrella. Funded by Arts Council England and London Councils.
