On Tuesday, Together Films hosted an online screening of Hostile, followed by a Q&A moderated by the brilliant Ursula Macfarlane.

Hostile is my debut, and we are so thankful for the support of Ursula Macfarlane, who has directed films such as Untouchable and The Lost Sons.

"Thank you Sonita for making this film it broke my heart, it made me angry. But now actually I have gone on a bit of a journey just even talking to you and realised we are a society that’s inclusive. It's not our natural thing to be divisive. Thank you for making a film that will make us think about these things and hopefully give us some optimism for change as well as breaking our hearts." - Ursula Macfarlane

A big thank you to Ursula for helping us to continue to elevate the stories of the participants in the film. We hope that we can influence long lasting change in the cruel immigration policies that are affecting migrant communities all over the UK.

Thank you to everyone who watched. You can view the full Q&A here:

'I've written music for about 70 films and television shows but I'm probably proudest of my involvement in this because it's incredibly important and it's the most salient thing out there right now'  - Nitin Sawhney

On Monday 13th December Hostile screened at the Bertha DocHouse in London. Bertha DocHouse is the UK's first cinema dedicated to documentary, and is described as the ‘home of documentary.’

Hostile is Sonita Gale's directorial debut, a feature-length documentary exposing the impact of the 'hostile environment' for migrants in the UK.

The screening was followed by an exclusive Q&A with the writer-director of Hostile, Sonita Gale, and was moderated by the award-winning musician Nitin Sawhney. Nitin Sawhney is an Executive Producer, and his music also features in the film. He is also interviewed in the film, sharing his personal experience of the hostile environment.

Nitin and Sonita discussed the creative inspiration behind the film alongside why it is very timely in light of recent immigration policies curbing the rights of migrants in the UK. With the Nationality and Borders Bill just being passed in parliament, this is an incredibly timely film and it is highly important that we continue to elevate the stories of migrant communities.

Thank you to everyone who came along. You can view the full Q&A here:

A big thank you to the London Migration Film festival for screening Hostile on Wednesday, on the last night of the festival. 

Hostile is Sonita Gale's directorial debut, a feature-length documentary exposing the impact of the 'hostile environment' for migrants in the UK.

The screening was followed by a heartfelt and informative Q&A with Sonita Gale alongside a panel of experts on the Hostile Environment including: Toufique Hossain (Director of Public Law at Duncan Lewis Solicitors) Daniel Trilling (journalist and author of Lights In The Distance: Exile And Refuge At The Borders Of Europe) and Praxis, a leading charity for migrants and refugees.

At the same time that the event was happening, the Nationality and Borders Bill was passed in parliament, which curtails the rights of refugees and migrants in the UK. It’s so important that festivals like these are continuing to facilitate vital conversations surrounding Human rights, and Migrant rights. We hope through events like these we can influence change in the treatment of migrants in this country.
