Anthony film premieres in Egypt and LA
After a successful World Premiere at the Thessaloniki Int’l Doc FF, with very good reviews, the film “Lost in the Bewilderness,” by Alexandra Anthony (Senior Critic, Film/Animation/Video) is having 2 other premieres:
INT’L PREMIERE: Ismailia International Film Festival, Egypt, JUNE 4, 2014
U.S. PREMIERE: Los Angeles Greek Film Festival, USA, JUNE 7, 2014
“Lost in the Bewilderness” is a feature-length documentary about the filmmaker’s cousin Lucas, kidnapped at age five from his native Greece, and found on the eve of his 16th birthday in the US. This story of international parental abduction, filmed for over twenty years, chronicles Lucas’s journey of growth and self-discovery, and culminates with Lucas becoming a father himself. “Lost in the Bewilderness” is not only a detective story but also a lyrical meditation on childhood, lost and found, and an exploration of how the themes of ancient Greek myth and tragedy, with the family at their center, are still very much alive in the modern world.
