Jim Lee was born in a field in Kent on November 1st 1936. Abandoned from birth, his childhood memories were a blur. "Lost & Found" follows his path as he travels across the ever changing face of Britain, drifting through various jobs, his life in constant flux. The film was created entirely from long forgotten super-8-footage recovered from around the UK. Set to a haunting soundtrack by the directors, "Lost & Found" tells the honest and unique story of a man forgotten by society.
Luke Seomore & Joseph Bull Following a childhood spent under suburban Essex skies, Luke Seomore and Joseph Bull
began collaborating at art college in East London, bringing a singularly British take to their elegant and hypnotic filmmaking. The 27 year olds’ DIY ethic includes the composition of their own soundtracks which reflect their often dark and dreamlike visual images, an interest that has lead them to create a number of music promos.
