LOST KINGS

Brian Lawes

Searching for food, a boy breaks into a neighborhood home. But when the homeowners return, he becomes trapped inside with those he's stealing from.

It takes a special storyteller to leave such an imprint with so little dialogue. The lead actor and cinematography quietly standout while oversimplification of wealth inequality is taken to task in this mini indie. It has a feeling of big name directors we know and love…eh hem, Steven Spielberg. — Elle S (Programmer)
