Film Independent Members and guests are invited to join us for a live Q&A with Lost Girls director Liz Garbus, producer Anne Carey and actor Amy Ryan.
When 24-year-old Shannan Gilbert mysteriously disappears one night, her mother Mari (Academy Award® nominee Amy Ryan) embarks on a dark journey that finds her face to face with hard truths about her daughter, herself and police bias. Determined to find her daughter at all costs, Mari Gilbert retraces Shannan’s last known steps, driving her own investigation to an insular gated community near the desolate outer banks of Long Island. Her discoveries force law enforcement and the media to uncover more than a dozen unsolved murders of sex workers; young lives Mari will not let the world forget. Inspired by Robert Kolker’s best-selling nonfiction book of the same name and produced by Archer Gray’s Anne Carey (Can You Ever Forgive Me?; 20th Century Women), Lost Girls is directed by two-time Academy Award® nominee Liz Garbus (The Fourth Estate; What Happened, Miss Simone?). Thomasin McKenzie, Gabriel Byrne and Lola Kirke co-star.
Lost Girls is available on Netflix.
