Professor Gregory Ruzzin’s film LOST CHILD? is a heartfelt journey that documents his relationship with his younger sister Alyssa, who struggles with epilepsy and a developmental disability. The film, which was an official selection at the Southern Utah International Documentary Film Festival, has been selected for two screenings in June 2013.
On June 7, 2013, LOST CHILD? will screen at Bosifest 2013, the Belgrade International Film Festival for and by People with Disabilities, where it will compete in the following categories: Best Film Grand Prix 2013 Bosifest, Best Director, Best-Case Scenario and Audience Award. The festival is held June 5 through June 7, 2013 in Serbia.
The Center For Independent Futures, based in Alyssa’s hometown of Evanston, Illinois, will also host a screening of the new classroom edition of LOST CHILD? on June 22, 2013. The event will include a meet and greet and Q&A with Professor Ruzzin and Alyssa.
Ruzzin says of the film, “In making LOST CHILD? I set out to tell Alyssa’s story, and accidentally ended up telling both her story and our story; the story of a sister, a brother, and the film that made them family again.”
Both events are free and open to the public. Watch the LOST CHILD? trailer below.
