Along with running the ArtSake blog, we (the editors) administer a grant program that rewards excellence in individual artists. Consequently, we get to experience a lot of new work, often in the process of its being made.
As the years tumble on, certain projects stick with us. One such project is Lost in the Bewilderness, a captivating personal documentary that Alexandra Anthony submitted, in progress, when she won a fellowship in 2007. It’s a film about Alexandra’s cousin Lucas, kidnapped at age five from his native Greece, only to be found as a teenager in the U.S. (the working title in 2007 was Lucas Lost and Found).
The film stayed with us for its sadness, its sense of wonder, its evocative portrayal of time. The filmmaker spent 30 years making the film. It’s about to have its Boston film premiere.
