An Evening of Journeys—Discussing the Film Lion
From Humanities Center
Screenwriter of "Lion," Academy Award Nominee, Best Adapted Screenplay
Luke Davies’ adapted screenplay for the film, “Lion” (2016), was nominated for an Academy Award. The film itself earned a nomination for the Academic Award for Best Picture, and was based on the true story of Saroo Brierley, from Brierley’s autobiography, “A Long Way Home.” In this presentation, Davies provides insights into how he adapted the compelling story from Brierley’s book into a screenplay for the critically-acclaimed movie about an adopted Indian man searching for his roots. Davies illustrates his talk with clips from the movie.
