On Thursday, September 8th, Hostile screened to an audience of students at Westminster University. The event was part of their London Summer School sponsored by the Erasmus Plus Project “MIGRANTS”.

Sonita was joined in a post-screening discussion with Saskia Huc-Hepher from the French Studies department at the University of Westminster, whose research focuses on questions of identity, belonging and homemaking among London’s French diaspora in on-land and on-line contexts.

The film was well received by the students in attendance, and the Q&A turned into a lively debate about class, race, diversity, politics and politicians from diverse background who enact racist legislation.

It also continued Hostile’s screenings at educational venues across the country to raise awareness of and debate issues surrounding the Hostile Environment. Previous education screenings included those at Oxford University, and Anglia Ruskin University.
