“Sometimes you have to get lost to figure out where you’re going…”
“How I GOT LOST”
Director, Joe Leonard (USA)
1:28:00 (For trailer click Here)
“How I Got Lost” follows two twenty-something buddies trying to cope with post-9/11 life by temporarily fleeing New York to work through personal issues of grief, romantic angst and contemporary malaise.
Originally a short film, writer-director Joe Leonard makes a generational statement about young Gothamites whose dreams and illusions were dashed in the wake of 9/11, weaving feelings of anger and confusion into a road-trip drama. The trip is scenic and the drama well played with great deep character portrayals by un-known actors.
Director of Photography Christopher Chambers makes this a visually polished film that achieves the desired contrast between the hustle-and-bustle of New York and the characters’ countryside (shot in Leonard’s native St. Louis) journey.
Please support this film and join us at the screening.
“How I Got Lost” is a great example of why independent film ideas drive the box office when we look for something and some new and fresh in film. “How I Got Lost” has won awards over the USA and this past June at ReelHeART, won “The Founder’s Award” (Best of The Fest).
