Published on March 11 2014


The work of Dramatic Arts graduate Nicolina Lanni (2005) was featured at the conclusion of CBC’s The Current on March 11, 2014.  She recently began the documentary film “Lost & Found” with colleague John Choi about the continuing impact on the lives forever changed by the Japanese Tsunami that occurred on this day three years ago. 

From the film’s website: 

Imagine losing everything. Your home, your business, all your worldly possessions. Gone forever… or are they?

Right now an epic endeavor is underway involving 2 continents, 3 countries and the largest body of water on earth. Join us as we go on a journey to discover the stories of those whose lives were stolen by the sea.

Nicolina’s project is made possible by HotDocs and the Doc Ignite crowd-funding platform.  "We feel so lucky to have been given the opportunity through Hot Docs and Doc Ignite to share our film with you and to work towards reaching our goal of raising $30,000 to help make this film and tell the amazing stories behind the artifacts that have washed ashore, " she exclaims on the film's website.
