Lost & Found

Lost & Found is a short film made for the Film & Philosophy module of my BA(Hons.) Film degree at Falmouth University. It explores the question: what is our purpose in life? Approaching the themes of existentialism and reflecting on questions typical of times of change, the core of the film takes inspiration from Camus’ introduction to his The Myth of Sisyphus, where he analyses what he deems as the only serious philosophical problem: “whether life is or is not worth living”. Adopting an optimistic mindset that poses that some meaning to life certainly exists, the film explores three main themes: change, freedom and, ultimately, purpose. Lost & Found has screened at the Cornwall Film Festival Local Showcase.


Lost & Found is a short film about meaning, purpose and the value of human connection. We follow our protagonist as they embark into a new age, where the need for human labour has been rendered redundant. In a society where we are defined by our jobs, the film poses the question: what is left for us in a world without purpose?
