‘America Lost:’ Filmmakers focusing documentary in Stockton, two other struggling cities

In addition to Stockton, Christopher Rufo and Keith Ochwat are visiting Youngstown, Ohio, and Alligator, Miss. The two are in Stockton this week, and this afternoon they said their feature-length project is scheduled for release in early 2016. From the Documentary Foundation website:

” ‘America Lost’ is a feature-length documentary that asks the question: What are the consequences when public institutions fail?

“The film explores this theme through the stories of the nation’s municipal bankruptcy crisis, the Rust Belt’s devastated economy, and the Mississippi Delta’s broken education system.

“The film shows the human toll of these failures by weaving the personal narratives of a single mother struggling to keep her family together, a block watch captain fighting to restore a neighborhood in decline, and a pair of seventh-graders who dream of escaping their impoverished rural town.”
