LACONIA — The Laconia Human Relations Committee in cooperation with the Laconia Public Library offers two films for the month of July, 'The Cut' and 'Lion,' as selections for the international film series, available at the Laconia Public Library.

'Lion' is the true story of a five-year-old Indian boy who gets lost in Calcutta in 1986, thousands of kilometers from home. He survives with other children on the street until he is kidnapped. He is eventually saved and is adopted by a couple in Australia. Twenty-five years later, he recognizes a rock formation on Google Earth that he believes is near his home town, and sets out to find his lost family. 'Lion' was filmed in 2016.

'The Cut,' released in 2014, takes place after World War I. The film follows the story of a young Armenian blacksmith living under the control of the Ottoman empire. He eventually learns that a daughter may have survived, and follows her to Cuba, and then the U.S.
