The Stephen F. Austin State University School of Art and the Friends of the Visual Arts will present a free, one-night screening of the documentary "Lion" at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 4, in The Cole Art Center @ The Old Opera House in downtown Nacogdoches.
The film is directed by Garth Davis and adapted from the book "A Long Way Home" by Saroo Brierley. It is the story of Saroo, a 5-year-old Indian boy who gets lost on the streets of Calcutta, thousands of miles from home. He survives many challenges before being adopted by a couple in Australia, and 25 years later, he sets out to find his lost family.
The Cole Art Center is located at 329 E. Main St. For more information, call (936) 469-1131.
