GIRLS LOST Releasing Dec. 13 on DVD, VOD

1:37 AM

"GIRLS LOST" is the story of three best friends - bullied, outcast fourteen-year-old girls - who explore gender identity, love and courage as they navigate the transitional age between childhood and adulthood. 

The girls find a magic flower that temporarily turns them into boys, and during nocturnal odysseys they enjoy their new identities. 

One of the girls is lured further and further into the boys' world questioning her sexuality as well, as her friends struggle to decipher their new magical reality.

Employing sleek visuals and a tactile electronic score, the film is a skillfully crafted tale about the essence of gender, and sexual confusion / awakening, with a clever supernatural twist. 

Presented in the allegorical mode of films and TV series like Ginger Snaps and Buffy the Vampire Slayer — which link supernatural powers to puberty and the emergence of adolescent desire — "GIRLS LOST" is a kind of transgender Twilight (albiet much edgier) in its portrait of three adolescent outsiders who undergo a startling transformation.
Acclaimed Swedish director Alexandra-Therese Keining said, "In 'GIRLS LOST,' fairy tale and imagination are mixed in a realistic depiction of what it’s like to grow up today, seen from a girl's perspective. I wanted to examine the limits of self and the body, and show that the phenomena of identity and gender is in perpetual motion, something that is constantly changing and is negotiable. I wanted to portray gender as a fluid notion, not an absolute, and explore ideas about how gender influences how we move through the world and how we are treated by others."
Based on the controversial and award winning Swedish novel Pojkarna by Jessica Schiefuerm, "GIRLS LOST" features fluid, passionate performances from the young leads (for almost all, this is their acting debut) to tell an original story and question gender and teenage sexuality in surprising ways.

"GIRLS LOST" will be released in the U.S. and Canada via Wolfe Video on Dec. 13: on DVD & VOD and across all digital platforms including iTunes, Vimeo On Demand, and and many major retailers.
