SportsMax: A film about West Indies batting icon Brian Lara, featuring rarely seen archive footage and stills, will open TT Film Festival on Wednesday night in Trinidad and Tobago.

Directed by award-nominated director Sam Lockyer, the film titled ‘501 Not Out’, focuses on Lara’s record-breaking innings for Warwickshire in 1994.

“I am truly honoured that 501 Not Out will be opening the TT Film Festival this year,” Lockyer said in a statement. “I have fulfilled a long-held dream in making the film and I hope that it is a fitting tribute to the genius of Brian Lara, my childhood hero and the greatest cricketer to ever live.”

The film will feature interviews with iconic names from the world of cricket, including some of his former international and county teammates from the historic treble-winning season, his friends and coaches in TT and the Caribbean, fans who witnessed the marathon knock first-hand and those inspired by his heroics.
