Lost for Life

More than 2,000 people in the US are serving life-without- parole sentences for crimes they committed as juveniles. Lost for Life, a new film from director Joshua Rofé, produced by Ted Leonsis, Rick Allen, and multiple-Oscars winner Mark Jonathan Harris, tells some of the most chilling of their stories — and those of their families and of the families of victims of juvenile murder. The result of four years of Rofé’s intensive effort, Lost for Life is a searing view, tackling this contentious issue from multiple perspectives and explores the complexity of the affected individuals’ lives. Lost for Life refuses to give easy answers, but prompts many questions, and forces us to consider what we mean by justice, punishment, mercy, redemption and forgiveness.
