Lion – WOW women only film screening

This is a true story of Saroo, a young child that gets separated from his family whilst boarding a train that transports him across India, thousands of miles away from home and family.

Saroo must learn to survive alone in Kolkata, before ultimately being adopted by an Australian couple. 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.

Time Magazine reviewed it as ‘A deeply empathetic performance from Dev Patel and an unflinching view of child poverty on the streets of Calcutta provide a winning edge to Lion’.

A definite must see!
