“Absolutely of its moment. It was time to see a film like that – with that many people together” Carol Nahra

“We’ve reached a point now where we need to challenge the hostile environment” Dave Carr

Hostile had a sold-out screening and Q&A at Crouch End Picturehouse last night. Dir. Sonita Gale was joined by Dave Carr on the panel hosted by Carol Nahra.

The audience was diverse and multi generational. Positive conversations around the film, its story, how migrants make up the NHS and uniting as a country. There was a strong sense of solidarity amongst the viewers.
