A conversation with Sadri Cetinkaya and Venla Varha, respectively co-director and co-writer/coeditor, of Lost Boys, screening at the 2021 CPH:DOX. They describe the film as a hybrid documentary, which blends narrative and real footage, and talks about a man’s search for his friends who go missing in Cambodia. The film is a standalone sequel to the 2010 film Raindeerspotting and Cetinkaya says it took them ten years to work on it. He also talks about the strong style of the film, the aforementioned blending of reality and fiction and more.

Lost Boys: Three Finnish friends set out on a trip to Thailand and Cambodia in Lost Boys, a dark and controversial film that starts out as a video diary and continues as a murder mystery. Jani and Antti have been in prison for years. When they are released, they travel with their friend Joonas to Thailand to celebrate their freedom in a dark and self-destructive frenzy of sex and hard drugs. Joonas films it all. But it all ends in disaster. He loses touch with the other two in Cambodia, and in a wild twist, he is suddenly trying to solve a murder in the city’s neon-coloured underworld.
