On Friday 26th May, Hostile Director Sonita Gale rounded off her week with an appearance on The Civil Fleet Podcast. 

Hosted by journalist Ben Cowles, The Civil Fleet is a side-project that he runs alongside his work as Online Editor at The Morning Star. 

The Civil Fleet is both a news blog and a podcast that covers the activist-led refugee rescue and support missions in the Mediterranean, the Aegean and all across Europe. He aims to draw attention “to the forced removal of people back to unsafe countries, their abandonment at sea, or detention in dangerous centres.” 

It aired on Wednesday. In the episode, Sonita and Ben discuss her journey into filmmaking, the Windrush scandal, and much more.
