On Tuesday, September 20th, Hostile screened for local residents at the Primrose Hill Community Association in London. It was shown as part of a regular slot reserved for discussions on global issues and the environment.
The screening took place in front of a mixed audience of different ages and diverse backgrounds, including students. Those who attended also spoke of their direct experiences as migrants, as well as the underlying racial prejudice and financial motivations that drive policy and its execution. The Q&A was hosted by writer and campaigner Andrew Feinstein.
The Primrose Hill Community Association (PHCA) was formed in 1978, taking control of the Community Centre in Hopkinson’s Place from 1980. They run events, activities, classes and workshops, and rely entirely on locally raised funding through activities, events and bookings and the support they receive from volunteers, local businesses and individuals.
This screening was the first to benefit from Hostile’s Impact Screening tour funded by the UK arm of the Ben & Jerry’s Foundation. And all proceeds from suggested donations went back to the community centre.
