Lion: Screening and Talk with Saroo Brierley

Event 67 Wednesday 7 March, 7.30pm-10pm Novo Cinemas, Dubai Festival City

When Saroo Brierley was just five years old, he got lost after boarding a train without his family and ended up living alone on the streets of Calcutta, far from a hometown he couldn’t name. Years later, living in Australia, he began a search that would change his life.

The book A Long Way Home is the story of that search and his reunion with his birth mother. A bestseller in Australia, the book gained global fame when it was adapted as the BAFTA-winning film Lion, starring Dev Patel, Nicole Kidman and Rooney Mara.

This screening, held in partnership with Dubai International Film Festival, is preceded by a talk by Saroo on the story behind the film and the new book he is currently writing – a ‘prequel’ about his adoptive and birth mothers in Australia and India.
