A Lion Returns (MA 15+)

A Lion Returns movie poster

Jamal has just returned to Australia after spending 18 months in Syria. No-one knows what he did or who he was with. He’s back in the country and wants to see his terminally ill mother, however has to deal with his strong minded older brother Omar, his wife Heidi and their young son, but most importantly his unforgiving father. But why has Jamal really come back? Is he a militant with a cause or an easily led pawn in a bigger global picture?
A story about redemption, forgiveness and the consequences of your actions on loved ones.

Cast: Tyler De Nawi, Danny Elacci, Helen Chebatte, Jacqui Purvis, Buddy Dannoun, Maha Wilson

Director: Serhat Caradee

★★★★½ "grabs you from the opening scene and never lets of the boldest and inventive Australian films seen in recent years." - David Stratton

★★★★ "a model in the art of small-scale film-making" - SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

"Shot in a staggering ten days on finances raised through crowd-funding, A Lion Returns is a mini-miracle of local filmmaking. It's also an excellent piece of cinema" - FILMINK
