On Tuesday 22nd November, Hostile screened at the University of Aberdeen.

After the screening an online Q&A took place with director Sonita Gale, hosted by Robert W. Heimburger.

Robert W. Heimburger is a Research Fellow in Theological Ethics at the University of Aberdeen who has a special interest in migration issues. 

Ahead of the screening, he provided the students with study pack titled “Film as a Public Ethical Arena”, which included ethical questions that the film raises for the audience to consider, as well as some important books, including Robert’s ‘Illegal Alien’, and books from Maya Goodfellow and Gargi Bhattacharyya who both were interviewed for the documentary.

The screening was a continuation of our impact campaign which raises awareness about the issues in the film in educational settings, and looks to see how Hostile can be a part of the curriculum in some courses. Specifically, we are focused on raising awareness of and pushing for reform to the ‘No Recourse to Public Funds’ policy.
