"In 1997, I wrote a story about a girl who traveled across Europe, Russia and Asia, filming the things she saw. That year, I contacted people in 15 countries and asked them to film their cities for me, as if they were her. Out of the tapes, I received, I made The Lost Days." -- Laura Waddington, 1999 "A strange feeling of melancholy haunts Laura Waddington's 'The Lost Days.' A young woman is on a journey. Her first stops are Marrakech, Lisbon and Paris. But the cities are just a backdrop for her imagination : out of focus streets, fleeting images from another world. A meditation what we are and where we come from. A portrait of being on the road and being lost in time.
