International Film Series Presents: Lion

March 2, 2018 @ 2:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Showtimes are 2:30 and 7:30 pm

Lion is a film that takes places in 1986, as a five-year-old Saroo becomes trapped on a decommissioned passenger train that takes him thousands of miles across India, away from a poor home and loving family. He must learn to survive alone in Calcutta; unable to identify himself or his family. Ultimately, he is adopted by a privileged and loving Australian couple and raised in Tasmania. Twenty-five years later, armed with only a handful of memories, his unwavering determination and a revolutionary technology known as Google Earth, he sets out to find his lost family and finally return to his first home. Based on a true story, Saroo struggles between two families and two worlds as he searches for where he truly belongs.
