‘The Lost and Found Series’ includes five documentary films, each under fifteen minutes, by a collective of filmmakers exploring what it means to lose something and what we can potentially gain from finding it again. Among the films are stories about the vanishing of an entire town in Southern Utah, the daily life of a scavenger who lives in a train yard slum, a misplaced Thai cowboy trying to live the American dream, and a man constructing an elaborate art installation of heaven, earth and hell, from steel, concrete, glass and painted violins, in a gutted warehouse.
The first film in the series, ‘Tarkio Balloon,’ was an official selection at the 2011 Big Sky Documentary Film Festival, featured in their ‘American Spectrum: Films of the American Experience’ program. You can stream ‘Tarkio Balloon’ online! The four other films are currently in production.
