Hostile screened at Picturehouse FACT Liverpool on Friday. Sonita was joined by participant Farrukh Sair in a packed screening and Q&A hosted by Sean Greves.

Many of the audience members had direct experience of the hostile environment, or were involved in helping those affected. We are pleased that the film is helping audience members to come forward and sharing their experiences in this way.
