BAFTA-nominated film director in Lyme Regis Q&A

Michael Gambon as Frank Hamilton in 'The Last Witness'

FILM director Piotr Szkopiak and producer Carol Harding are appearing in a question and answer session, followed by the showing of their film ‘The Last Witness’, in Lyme Regis. 

Set in 1947, the film is about a young, ambitious journalist who risks love, career and ultimately his life to uncover the true identity of an Eastern European refugee and his connection to one of Stalin’s most notorious crimes.

Piotr Szkopiak has been nominated for two BAFTAs and regularly directs programmes for television, including ‘EastEnders’ and ‘Doctors’.

‘The Last Witness’ stars Alex Pettyfer (‘Magic Mike’, ‘I am Number Four’), Talulah Riley (‘Westworld’), Michael Gambon (‘Harry Potter’, ‘King of Thieves’) and Robert Wieckiewicz (‘In Darkness’).

The question and answer session and film screening will be held at the Marine Theatre in Lyme Regis on Friday, January 18 with doors opening at 6.30pm for a 7.30pm start.

Tickets cost £6 in advance or £8 on the door, with 10% off for Theatre Friends. To book, call 01297 442138 or visit
