On this special episode of The Last New Wave, I was able to sit down with Saroo and Sue Brierley, the people who have inspired the Garth Davis directed film Lion. In this interview we discuss how Saroo’s inspirational story was transferred to the screen, as well as discussing the importance of adoption in Australia.
This interview was recorded in the Outdoor section of Luna Leederville, so there is a bit of background noise, but hopefully that doesn’t disrupt from what is an interesting interview. Many thanks to the folks at Luna for allowing us to utilise their space to record.
Find out more about Saroo’s journey, and his book A Long Way Home on his website here.
