On 15th March, Hostile will be screening as part of a series of films celebrating pioneering female documentary-makers in many new digital restorations from the BFI National Archive, supported by The Film Foundation. These films are at the heart of the BFI’s project to raise the visibility of the women who’ve been making documentaries for almost 100 years. There are works that reveal the impact of war on families, examine housing conditions, expose barriers against inclusive societies: both then and now there are women on the frontline, telling stories.
Including films from Ruby Grierson, Penny Woolcock, Waad Al-Kateab, Rubika Shah, Lizzie MacKenzie, Andrea Arnold and Sonita Gale.
Tickets on sale soon – here.
More information on the programme is available here.
Hostile is a documentary revealing the impact of the Hostile Environment for people who are migrants in the UK.
