25 years on from Brian Lara’s world-record breaking innings for Warwickshire at Edgbaston, ‘501 Not Out’ tells the story of cricket’s first global superstar.
Exploring Lara’s remarkable ascent in 1994, the film also celebrates his development in Trinidad and features interviews with a number of iconic names from the world of cricket. These include his former international and county team-mates from the historic treble winning season, his friends and coaches in the Caribbean, fans who witnessed the marathon knock first-hand and those inspired by his heroics. Notable contributions come from Sir Curtly Ambrose, Allan Donald, Dermot Reeve, Gladstone Small, Dennis Amiss, Jonathan Agnew, Ian Bell, Deryck Murray, Bryan Davis and Trini Posse Group co-founders Nikki Borde and Nigel Camacho.
Our World Premiere screening is this Saturday 17th August at The MAC from 7pm and it is nearly sold out so GET IN QUICK WHILE YOU STILL CAN! It will be followed by a Q&A that will feature Tim Munton John Morris and also the film’s director. The after party will be at, where else, but the new 501* lounge and bar at Edgbaston straight after the premiere event has concluded where we have Marston’s sponsoring and providing us with a pop up bar. There will also be a second screening on Wednesday 21st August and we still have good availability for this screening.
