Storyline

'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 sixteenth birthday in the U.S. 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.

Family life as seen through film in 2014 will be remembered for 'Boyhood' and 'Lost in the Bewilderness.'
15 January 2015 | by mark-erderSee all my reviews

A major accomplishment collapsing 30 years of real life into 90 minutes, 'Lost' tells multiple stories simultaneously and richly. Anthony reveals the inner workings of family in a way that 'reality TV' can't begin to touch.

Some of her imagery is mystical and beautiful; some of it simply touches us with its 'everydayness.' Combined, her pictures, and intimate writing and narration allow the 'familiar' to take us someplace else.

Her dedication to completing this film over so many years of production and post- production should be an inspiration to all documentary filmmakers.
