The Lost Holiday

Imagine yourself walking around in Sweden. You walk towards a narrow street and suddenly you stop right next to a dumpster. The place reeks of leftover food, but you just can't help yourself from the suitcase that's just standing there. You open the suitcase and found 22 rolls of undeveloped film. What would you do?

Believe it or not, this is a true story. The 22 rolls of film belong to six Chinese tourists. A Czech film crew decided to develop these films and go on hunt for these men. The documentary that they made during their gripping investigation became a hit and was viewed by more than 300,000,000 Chinese citizens.

From the words of the official website, “How difficult is it to find 6 men in a country of 1.3 billion people? Every picture truly does tell a thousand words. A documentary about culture and identity, about memory and images, about deception and reality, the film shows that nothing is ever lost.”
