Last night, Sonita attended the screening of Hostile at BAFTA 195 alongside participant Farrukh Sair. Sonita was also joined by Ayanna Witter-Johnson who composed the beautiful music for the film, alongside Nitin Sawhney, that highlighted the emotional plight of the participants in the film. 

Hostile was illuminated on the big screen like never before with Dolby Surround Sound and double projection. After the screening, conversations continued about the film, the participants and how we hope the film can help raise awareness of the Hostile Environment.

Hostile has been BAFTA longlisted for Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer.
