Hostile is an exceptionally timely and vital look at the UK's complicated relationship with its migrant communities, and the evolution of the 'hostile environment'.

Director Sonita Gale follows the stories of everyday people affected by the UK's hostile policies, from members of the Windrush generation to international students and 'Highly-Skilled Migrants', weaving in her own family history too.

Alongside these often unheard stories of people caught up in the system, this heartfelt film traces the development of law and policy over the past 50 years, creating a powerful document of the UK today, and the direction in which we may be headed.

Thursday 3 February: This screening will be followed by a live in-person Q&A with director Sonita Gale and the UK Director of Human Rights Watch, Yasmine Ahmed, hosted by journalist Jeevan Ravindran.
