GIRLS LOST Releasing Dec. 13 on DVD, VOD1:37 AM
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.
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.
