Charleston resident Madison McGhee’s first full-length film premieres this weekend in her hometown.
The Charleston Gazette-Mail reports that in the documentary, McGhee documents her travels, exploring places like Dublin, Paris and Lisbon, Portugal. She interviews young people living in Europe and explores what it means to find happiness and success.
The documentary is called “The Lost + Found Project.” It will be shown at the Capitol Theater at 5 p.m. Saturday. A block party will be held on Summers Street outside the theater starting at 4 p.m.
McGhee says she doesn’t have formal film experience but plans to submit the project to several film festivals this year. She says she hopes the film inspires others to step back and ask themselves what they want to do.
