The film will be followed by a Q&A session with the director Mark Griffin.
This film is the story of the last years of the life of T.E. Lawrence – Lawrence of Arabia – a scholar, writer, soldier and reluctant hero. Retiring to his cottage in Dorset he hopes to escape his past but is pulled into political intrigue. While he has powerful friends, with his uncompromising manner he has made dangerous enemies.
As they plot against him he dies in a tragic motorcycle accident. However, with such enemies was his untimely death an assassination and cover up by the British Secret Service?
“Lawrence: After Arabia” is the final act in the TE Lawrence story which chronologically follows David Lean’s “Lawrence of Arabia” (1962) which starred Peter O’Toole as T.E. Lawrence and “Lawrence: A Dangerous Man” (1996) which starred Ralph Fiennes in the starring role.
