Hostile will be screening at Curzon Soho on Wednesday 30th March at 6.15pm followed by Q&A. Tickets available at bit.ly/curzon-hostile
We are so pleased to announce that the Q&A will be hosted by Hon. Stuart Lawrence. 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.
Director Sonita Gale looks forward to speaking further with Stuart about his monumentally important work, and about Hostile – and how communities can work together to influence change.
