Eaten by Lions. Written by David Isaac (Coronation Street, Lunch Monkeys, Life of Riley) and Produced by the Award-winning Hannah Stevenson (In Another Life), EATEN BY LIONS is director Jason Wingard’s second feature film. His first feature ‘In Another Life’ (Hannah Stevenson also produced) won Best UK Feature at Raindance 2017 and picked up the BIFA Discovery award (British Independent Film Award).
EATEN BY LIONS tells the heart-warming story of half-brothers Omar (Antonio Aakeel) and Pete (Jack Carroll), who were raised by their Grandma after their parents were tragically killed by lions in a bizarre accident. When their beloved Gran passes away, they embark on a life-changing journey to find Omar’s real father. What follows is a funny and touching journey of self-discovery for both boys…in Blackpool. The Choudray family represent a truly contemporary example of modern multicultural Britain, but what will the brothers make of their eccentric newfound family?
EATEN BY LIONS, is a charming tale of one boy’s (Antonio Aakeel) search for his biological father and his own sense of identity, and the unexpected ways in which friendships and a sense of belonging are formed in a multicultural society.
