On Tuesday, Together Films hosted an online screening of Hostile, followed by a Q&A moderated by the brilliant Ursula Macfarlane.

Hostile is my debut, and we are so thankful for the support of Ursula Macfarlane, who has directed films such as Untouchable and The Lost Sons.

“Thank you Sonita for making this film, it broke my heart, it made me angry. But now actually I have gone on a bit of a journey just even talking to you and realised we are a society that’s inclusive. It’s not our natural thing to be divisive. Thank you for making a film that will make us think about these things and hopefully give us some optimism for change as well as breaking our hearts.” – Ursula Macfarlane

A big thank you to Ursula for helping us to continue to elevate the stories of the participants in the film. We hope that we can influence long lasting change in the cruel immigration policies that are affecting migrant communities all over the UK.

Thank you to everyone who watched. You can view the full Q&A here:


Hostile is a feature documentary exposing the ‘hostile environment’ for migrants in the UK.
