Lost and Found



For every homeless person there is a story, and someone, somewhere might be looking for them. This truth is profoundly and movingly shown in ETV’s latest Southern Lens offering, Lost and Found, produced and directed by Betsy Newman. In 1974, Newman’s sister Paula disappeared after exhibiting signs of mental illness. No one ever heard from her again. Twenty-five years later, Newman sees a picture in the New York Times of a woman panhandling in San Francisco who bears an uncanny resemblance to Paula. With the help of the Times and the San Francisco Coalition on Homelessness, she tracks down the woman in the picture. On the slim possibility that this woman might Lost and Found is the story of that visit - a personal search that extends beyond the individual to explore critical social issues.
