Last night Hostile played at the Little Theatre Cinema in Bath. The screening was followed by a sold-out Q&A with Director Sonita Gale and political philosopher Brad Evans hosted by Nicolas Hatton, CEO of the3million.

It was an incredibly moving Q&A, with an insightful debate very much driven by the UK’s history including colonisation and the British Empire.

Professor Brad Evans is a political philosopher, critical theorist, and writer, whose work specialises in the problem of violence. His work is particularly concerned with addressing the multiple forms violence takes in the world, while developing a more poetic critique that highlights the importance of the arts and the imaginary. The author of nineteen books and edited volumes, along with over a hundred academic and media articles, he currently holds a Chair in Political Violence & Aesthetics at the University of Bath, United Kingdom. Brad Evans is a participant in Hostile.

Nicolas Hatton is the CEO of the EU citizens’ group the3million and a leading campaigner on citizens’ rights issues. Born and raised in the Loire Valley (France), Nicolas moved from Angers to London in 1995 under the free movement framework and made the UK his home through the love of marmite and pubs. Since 2014, Nicolas has been an elected member of the French community in the UK. Nicolas is also a trustee at Settled, the charity offering guidance to vulnerable EU citizens, and at l’École Française de Bristol.
