*30 years in the making...*

"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-five years,
chronicles Lucas’s journey of growth and self-discovery, and culminates
with a surprise ending. “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.


Alexandra Anthony is an award-winning filmmaker who directs, shoots, edits,
writes, and narrates her own work.

LOST IN THE BEWILDERNESS is the second in a trilogy of non-fiction films –
intergenerational family stories which center on young protagonists caught
between two cultures, between youth and adulthood, and at a crossroads in
their life. The first of these, YAYA, was completed in 1984 and the third
film, THREE POMEGRANATE SEEDS, will soon be in post-production. Anthony is
particularly intrigued by the parallels of these contemporary stories with
Greek myth and tragedy and with the passage of time.

Anthony has been an editor for American PBS's award-winning television
series NOVA, FRONTLINE, and numerous specials for U.S. and international
broadcast. Her sound recording work has taken her to Ethiopia, Bangladesh,
and Mongolia.

Anthony teaches filmmaking at the Rhode Island School of Design in
Providence, Rhode Island.
