FILM SCREENING

Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence 15

Director Nagisa Oshima
Starring David Bowie, Tom Conti, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Takeshi, Jack Thompson

The 1983 film, based on the experiences of Sir Laurens van der Post, stars David Bowie and Tom Conti as Second World War British prisoners of war Major Celliers and Lieutenant Colonel Lawrence. The film deals with their tense and complex relationship with the Japanese camp commandant, Captain Yonoi (played by Ryuichi Sakamoto, who also wrote the music score) and the mercurial, brutal Sergeant Hara (Takeshi Kitano).

Hosted by BBC Radio Merseyside’s Roger Phillips, this event is part of a full programme of activities for The Secret Art of Survival exhibition at the Victoria Gallery & Museum. The exhibition highlights artwork created secretly by British servicemen during Far East captivity. A chamber choir from Liverpool Philharmonic Youth Company will perform Dvorak’s Largo in four-part harmony.
