Marymount College presents the free Ito/Matsuura Film Series at the Warner Grand Theatre. Lost Angels: Thomas Napper's empathetic but tough-minded documentary invites us into a part of Los Angeles that many choose to ignore - downtown's skid row. As we meet the distressed area's residents, including a former Olympic runner, a transgendered punk rocker, and an eccentric animal lover and her devoted companion, their remarkable stories paint a multifaceted portrait of life on the streets. There are undeniable problems - mental illness and addiction are common themes - but there is also hope and a surprising sense of community. Official Selection - 2010 Los Angeles Film Festival.
