Lost Lagoon (2013)

Director: Rob Leickner
Producers: Rob Leickner, Michelle Kim
Writer: Rob Leickner

Lost Lagoon is a visually provocative dramatic feature about a Korean woman whose move to Canada sets her on a darkly comic journey to self discovery. Winner of the 2013 Best Canadian Feature Award at the Toronto Reel World Festival. Here is what the jury had to say about the film:
“A fresh and contemporary exploration of the Canadian immigrant experience in Vancouver, this poignant film juxtaposed the beauty and isolation of the West Coast with an authentic story of finding and maintaining individualism in a new world. Leickner’s strong direction, script and scene composition was coupled with an evocative Indy soundtrack, outstanding lead performance from Diana Bang and complex supporting characters result in a humorous yet subtly dangerous tone.
