The Lost Boys of Portlandia

Portland’s homeless youth debate the return to mainstream society after watching Peter Pan. They make their own film version exploring how, if and why they should go back to the world that threw them away.

“On its surface, it’s a film about the making of a film, but the backdrop is flooded with one of Portland’s most pressing social issues.” - KGW-TV.

The film is also the origin story and inspiration of Outside the Frame, an organization that trains homeless and marginalized youth to be the directors of their own films and lives. Learn more and support their work here.
