Poetic, mysterious and visually elegant, Christopher Holmes' debut feature forges an impressionistic coming-of-age narrative as prismatic as the ever-changing strand of shoreline the story inhabits. With refreshing sincerity and an unassuming sense of humor, Lost Colony considers the lives of conflicted teen Loren, his hyper-protective mother Patricia, and others like them along the Outer Banks of North Carolina's coast- site of the first attempted English settlement in the New World. As Loren begins to sense the widening distance between himself and his expecting girlfriend Ramona, a near tragic accident threatens to capsize their world and forces a reckoning with the delicate mythology he has crafted to make sense of it. A searchlight cast upon the earliest traces of America and the mystery of settlers vanished, Lost Colony scans a once virgin watershed for signs of life. Written by
