In the United States today, more than 2,500 individuals are serving life-without-parole sentences for crimes they committed when they were 17 years old or younger. Children as young as 13 are among the thousands serving these sentences. Lost for Life, a new film from director Joshua Rofé, produced by Ted Leonsis, Rick Allen, Mark Jonathan Harris (director of three Academy Award-winning films) and Peter Landesman, tells the stories of these individuals, 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 documentary—one that tackles 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.
