Italian filmmaker comes to Eastwood

Return to Sea and Sardinia retracing D.H. Lawrence's steps a century on

Take in sun, travel, music and people. A new film, to be screened at Eastwood Town Council, Return to Sea and Sardinia, will make it possible for people to explore D.H. Lawrence’s journey from Sicily to Sardinia in 1921.

It was a voyage which was to inspire one of the writer’s most significant travel works, Sea and Sardinia.

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the book’s publication, the Fondazione Sardegna Film Commission supported Daniele Marzeddu to direct the film Return to Sea and Sardinia. The multi award-winning Italian director will be visiting Eastwood, which has been selected to host the film, as part of a limited number of viewings.

The town’s own D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum are pleased to host this, at the nearby Council Chamber, as the first of a series of pop-up cinema events.
