The film sheds light on how crumbling economic and social institutions have created a gap between the haves and have nots while also offering hope for rebuilding America’s “forgotten” from the bottom up.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

(dramatic piano music)

- [Man] This is an area that,

really, people are just hanging on.

- "America Lost" follows my five-year journey

documenting families living on the brink

in three of America's poorest cities.

I wove together these stories

with my own personal impressions,

not of people addressing these problems from the top down,

but individuals, families, neighborhoods, and communities

addressing them from the inside out.

(dramatic piano music)
