America Lost

Synopsis

America Lost is a feature-length documentary that explores the dramatic decline of family, economic, and civic life in three of America’s “forgotten cities”—Stockton, California, Youngstown, Ohio, and Memphis, Tennessee.

The film shows the devastating human toll of this cultural upheaval through the stories of a single mother struggling to keep her family together, an inner-city pastor fighting to restore a chaotic neighborhood, and a pair of seventh-graders who dream of escaping their impoverished rural town.

America Lost sheds light on how our eroding social institutions limit individual opportunity and create a dangerous divide between success and failure.

Ultimately, despite these grave challenges, the film issues a passionate call for a cultural Great Awakening to empower individuals to rebuild their families and communities from the bottom up.

The film is currently in production. Follow on Twitter for updates.
