​Hostile is a BAFTA and BIFA Longlisted feature-length documentary written, produced and directed by Sonita Gale, focusing on the UK's complicated relationship with its migrant communities. Told through the stories of four participants from Black and Asian backgrounds, the film focuses on the impact of the evolving 'hostile environment' policies that target migrants, including No Recourse to Public Funds which is forcing people into destitution.  The film explores how the lives of international students, members of the Windrush generation and 'Highly Skilled Migrants' have been affected. The film features music from award-winning musicians Nitin Sawhney and spoken word from George the Poet. Nitin Sawhney also served as an Executive  Producer.

The film screening is organised by the Oxford Human Rights Festival in collaboration with the Migration and Refugees Network.
