Director Ramaa Mosley’s Lost Child, a feature she wrote along with producer Tim Macy, is slated to open in theaters on Sept. 14, distributed by Breaking Glass Pictures.
Lost Child stars Leven Rambin (Hunger Games, True Detective), Taylor John Smith (Sharp Objects) and Jim Parrack (Suicide Squad, True Blood). Mosley’s film follows an army vet, Fern, who returns home in order to look for her brother--only to discover an abandoned boy lurking in the woods behind her childhood home. After taking in the boy, she searches for clues to his identity, and discovers the local folklore about a malevolent, life-draining spirit that comes in the form of a child.
The thriller recently won Best Narrative Feature distinction at the 2018 Kansas City Film Festival, and the Best Actress honor for Rambin at the Taormina Film Festival. Lost Child was also an official selection at the Bentonville Film Festival, the Heartland Film Fest, and the Sarasota Film Festival.
Director/writer Mosley made her first film at the age of 16, winning the prestigious United Nations’ Global 500 Award in the process. Over the past 20 years, Mosley has directed feature films and hundreds of award -winning commercials. Mosley directed her debut feature film--based on the original comic book she co-wrote--titled The Brass Teapot starring Juno Temple. The Brass Teapot premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and was distributed by Magnolia Pictures in 2013. It was nominated for the International Critics’ Award (FIPRESCI) and a Saturn Award.
