Highly acclaimed Australian author, Marele Day recently had her best selling book Lambs of God adapted as a four-part series for Foxtel.

Sarah Lambert, an award-winning writer/producer and best known as the creator of the smash-hit drama Love Child was the writer and show-runner for Lambs of God.

Sarah and Marele will be guest speakers at a special event screening of Episodes 1 & 2 of Lambs of God at the Brunswick Picture House on Thursday 8th August. They will discuss how they took a complex story and adapted it for the screen, explaining what was left in, what was taken out and what was done differently. They will also be answering questions from the audience.

This dark, gothic tale about three nuns, has an international all-star cast, led by Emmy Award-winning actress Ann Dowd (The Handmaids Tale, The Leftovers), Australian stage and screen star Essie Davis (Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries) and UK actress, Jessica Barden. It’s an epic and fantastical tale of faith, love and redemption.
