Overview

‘Tracking Forgiveness’ features production shots and behind the scenes photos taken by stills photographer Jaap Buitendijk during the filming of ‘The Railway Man’ which took place in Berwick-upon-Tweed, Edinburgh, Queensland and Thailand in 2012.

The film tells the story of late Berwick resident Eric Lomax who was one of thousands of Allied prisoners of war forced to work on the construction of the construction of the notorious Death Railway in Thailand during World War Two.   In 1995, Lomax wrote and published ‘The Railway Man’ a powerful memoir placing his wartime experience in the context of his whole life. It went on to win two literary prizes and is now a major feature film starring Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman.

The exhibition will also include personal wartime possessions belonging to Eric Lomax kindly on loan from his wife, Patti.

The Railway Man is showing at The Maltings Theatre and Cinema throughout the first week in January. Full details of dates and times can be found at http://www.maltingsberwick.co.uk/events/film/1344
