Director Statement

I am so excited about "LOST HILLS, CA." After the poem placed 3rd at the California State Poetry Competition 2005, it continued to impress the small press circuit. I decided to adapt the poem into this short film in 2010. To my surprise, it has and still continues to 'have legs.' I hope you enjoy it!
