A Leonardo Leon film.
Lost Angeles is an independent film that is looking for funding. It is about a woman who went to Los Angeles in search of a modelling career, but through a series of trip-ups she finds herself homeless.
I was under the impression it was a documentary when I read the summary:
“The City of Los Angeles has the highest homeless population in America. It is constantly growing by thousands of people who are in search of an elusive Hollywood Dream. These people find themselves in compromising situations where work is hard to find and housing is exceptionally high…”
I was a bit disappointed that it wasn’t non-fiction because of the effort the cast and crew went to to make the film authentic; they gave up their apartments to experience homelessness during the shoot.
Looking at the trailer the acting appears quite theatrical. I hope this doesn’t let the film down because it seems like a great way to look into the serious issue of homelessness in America.
Via IndieGoGo, the film makers are asking for $50,000 to complete filming and post production. If this sounds like a film you’re interested in seeing, feel free to donate.
