Mick Jagger's scathing response to Brexit has inspired a compelling, quietly furious video by Saam Farahmand.

While Jagger uses a sporting metaphor in England Lost to make his point about the country's slide into global irrelevance, Farahmand takes the metaphor in another more cinematic direction.

Luke Evans plays the man from the Ministry, with '50s suit and impeccable old-world manners, who senses the need to rebel. And so he runs - not only from the city, but apparently out of his own time. Colliding into signs of a far more modern world feeds his paranoia and the desire to escape. But ultimately, and in classic fashion, he is marooned. 

Farahmand's surreal nightmare vision, laced with humour, reflects Jagger's own beginnings in the mid-20th century - the age of George Orwell, post-war paranoia, old school espionage. And also the brilliant 60s TV show The Prisoner, where the hero was imprisoned in the Village, and the border of his world was the beach. Here the Village is just a little bit bigger.
