Created by Village Entertainment, In Association with Spectrum Studios, Chhibber Mann Productions, and Lynchpin Productions, LOST IN AMERICA follows director Rotimi Rainwater, a former homeless youth, on his 6 year journey to shine a light on the issue of youth homelessness.
Executive produced by Rosario Dawson and Jewel, and featuring interviews with more than 30 youth in 15 cities, as well as politicians and public figures including Tiffany Haddish, Halle Berry, Jon Bon Jovi, Miley Cyrus, Sanaa Lathan, Rebecca Gayheart-Dane, this film gives an unflinching, honest look at what these youth have to endure just to survive, and why as a nation this is one epidemic we just didn’t see coming. It also examines what many organizations and politicians are doing (or not doing) to help these youth in order to answer one major question how, in the wealthiest country in the world, can 4.2 million youth experience homelessness every year.
