"Caren Cross's film about shifting her life to Mexico is deceptively simple. I found it captivating and intriguing. People are leaping over a cultural border and finding something they couldn't get at home. What does that imply about the modern American way of life? What does it say to those of us similarly disenchanted with modern life? What exactly is the secret that is hidden in a more traditional way of life? The idea in this film could be the seed of another cultural revolution. Don't get me wrong, it's a simple film, but it beautifully sets in motion a quiet earthquake in the viewer."

“LOST and FOUND in MEXICO makes me remember what I wanted out of life when I was young. It is a film that makes you question what you do, why you do it, and how you might change your life.”

BEWARE: Watching LOST and FOUND in MEXICO could change your life!
Beverly Donofrio, author of Riding in
Cars with Boys
This film is beyond wonderful. Technically, the photography, color, graphics, sound, editing are a tour de force. But, more powerful is its absolute integrity and honesty as the filmmaker takes us through the compelling virtues of living in San Miguel and the diverse people that call it home. It has an enviable future.
Thomas Maxey, former Worldwide Vice

LOST and FOUND in MEXICO begins as a story about relocating to San Miguel de Allende--- showing us the beauty and aliveness of a Mexican town and its people. It then engages us in a much more profound and important journey, asking, “How do we keep our heart and our truth as we live?”
This film will stir you up! It stays with you. You want to talk about it. And talk about it. And talk about it.
Rosemary Schwartz, artist
Your film is actually part of the reason for my misery because it touched a chord, made me realize how little I enjoy my life and the absurd American nightmare I am living. But that's a good thing.
