Film Lectio I - Lion
Starts Tuesday 20 April
Lion is a 2016 Australian biographical drama film directed by Garth Davis from a screenplay by Luke Davies based on the 2013 non-fiction book A Long Way Home by Saroo Brierley.
It is a heart-warming and an incredible real life story of Saroo Brierley, a 5-year-old Indian boy, who gets separated from his poor family. An empty train carriage drags him to Kolkata, a city that doesn't speak his language.
Miles away from his home, braving human traffickers and child predators, he eventually gets adopted by a compassionate couple in Australia. Twenty five years later, recurring memory flashes of his childhood propel him to search for his lost home and birth mother in India, with the help of Google’s mapping program.
The film is a joint production between Australia and the United Kingdom and is Garth Davis' six time Oscar nominated debut feature film.
