Last night Hostile screened at Curzon Soho. The Q&A was hosted by the brilliant Hon.Stuart Lawrence. The Q&A provoked some thought-provoking questions from teachers and political activists surrounding how the next generation can be empowered to help inspire social and political change. We hope that Hostile can continue to inspire these conversations across the country and we aim to be bringing the film into more educational settings soon too.
Stuart Lawrence is an author, public speaker and the younger brother of Stephen Lawrence. Stephen Lawrence (13 September 1974 – 22 April 1993) was a young black man from Woolwich, South-East London, who was murdered in a racially motivated attack whilst waiting for a bus in Well Hall, Eltham on the evening of 22nd April 1993. His family’s tireless campaign for justice led to cultural shifts and changes in attitudes towards racism within British society, the law and the Metropolitan Police. This fight and their story are still as impactful and important today as it was in the 90’s, whilst the fight for justice and change continues.
