Originally inspired by the real-life story of a little boy in Belfast, Ireland, who somehow managed to sneak a penguin out of the zoo during a class trip and all the way home to his bathtub before anyone noticed, LOST AND FOUND tells the unforgettable story of a little boy who one day finds a penguin on his doorstep. Assuming that the unexpected visitor must have lost his way, the thoughtful and determined boy takes up the noble task of bringing the penguin back home – even if it means rowing all the way to the South Pole! But when the pair finally arrive at their destination, the boy soon discovers that maybe the penguin wasn’t really lost after all. Maybe he was just lonely… And maybe he wasn’t the only one.
Gentle and uplifting in equal measure, LOST AND FOUND provides families with a welcome alternative t0 today’s more frenetic on-screen entertainment options for kids. In addition to the movie, the DVD contains a special “Making of” featurette, showcasing interviews with Jeffers, as well as key members of the production and creative teams. The segment offers viewers a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the various elements that seamlessly come together to bring this dynamic film to memorable life.
“Lost and Found should serve as an example to all children’s filmmakers
that kids don’t need a fast-paced cartoon or disrespectful characters to become engaged in a story. The pace of the 30-minute production is perfect,
as is everything else about it.”
