Description

Presented by ACH Child and Family Services, CitySquare, Paving the Way, and the University of Texas Arlington-School of Social Work, Lost In America is a feature-length documentary that follows director Rotimi Rainwater's journey in shining a light on youth homelessness in the US, and introduces you to kids on the street who tell you their incredibly intense and moving stories.

The film takes an all-encompassing look at this pandemic, highlighting issues like human trafficking, the foster care system, youth rejected because of their sexuality, domestic violence, abuse, and more. It also examines what many organizations, politicians, and other public figures are doing (or not doing) to help these young people. Moving beyond politics, society's feelings towards them, funding and bureaucracy, what lies at the heart of Lost In America are the stories of OUR youth.

Through Rotimi’s personal connection with these youth, we take an inside look at who they are and what their lives are truly like. We explore the reasons why they ended up on the streets, the issues they face, and the things they have to do to survive. These young people are not outcasts, not invisible children who are meant to be forgotten. They are our future, they are our hope, and by illuminating their stories, we hope to serve as a catalyst for change, making them no longer... Lost In America.

Thank you to the film's producer/director, Rotimi Rainwater, for making this film available to raise much-needed funds. Rotimi Rainwater will be in attendance and will join us in discussion following the film.
