Netflix Trailer for 'Found' Doc Following Three Adopted Teenage Girls
"You need to have a lot of courage to come back." Netflix has revealed a trailer for an indie documentary film titled Found, the latest from director Amanda Lipitz who earned quite a bit of acclaimed with her doc film Step from a few years ago. This just premiered at the 2021 Hamptons Film Festival, and arrives on Netflix in a few weeks. Three American teenage girls, each adopted from China, come across a life-changing discovery after a DNA service informs them they are cousins. The online reunion sparks a burning desire to visit China, in an attempt to understand their past and to come to terms with their lives so far. Their journey marks the cousins' first in-person meeting, and they band together in search of the answers that hold the key to their past. The film "elegantly sheds light on the resilience of teenage girls and the histories that bind us as we confront our unspoken pasts in order to face uncharted futures." This looks a great doc discovery.
