“Being a migrant is an experience, not an identity” – Zrinka Bralo, Migrants Organise
Audiences braved the windy weather on Friday to come to the screening of Hostile at The Gate cinema in Notting Hill.
Director Sonita Gale was joined by Zrinka Bralo, CEO of Migrants Organise in an illuminating Q&A hosted by Elliot Grove. The Q&A centred around migrants rights and grassroots organising, with many of the audience members asking how they can get involved.
