‘Lost and Found’ screening at Savannah Film Festival
I am currently on a US tour, with National Geographic, promoting ‘Lost and Found’, directed by Academy Award winner Orlando von Einsiedel. It’s a short documentary about Kamal Hussein, a Rohingya refugee who has used the little resources he has to reunite families in the world’s largest refugee camp on earth.
My trip started in beautiful Savannah at the fantastic film festival run by SCAD. Despite it being 9am on a Monday morning, we had a full cinema and a really engaged audience who asked some great questions.
The ‘textbook ethnic cleansing’ (U.N.) that occurred in Myanmar, and the subsequent refugee crisis, is out of the news and nobody has been held to account, which sets a terrifying precedent for other regimes. We’re hoping this film brings some attention to a forgotten atrocity.
Next stop San Francisco with a screening and Q&A at SF Film Doc Stories.
