Island of Lost Girls
Directed by Ann-Marie Schmidt
ISLAND of LOST GIRLS may be a family film, but it’s also one of the coolest, craziest and most intense nature thrillers ever made. It’s the story of three young girls trying to stick together as they get trapped in a sea cave filled with crashing waves, hundreds of sea lions, and monstrous elephant seals.
This film was shot on location on a remote island off the coast of Baja, Mexico. The girls performed all their own stunts, often swimming in real sea caves and encountering a host of wild animals. They survived the shooting, but will they survive the movie?

This film was shot by four kids (ages 10, 7, 4, 2) and their parents. Arriving on location in a 22 ft fishing boat, they were dropped off on a remote island with two cameras, food, and supplies. They slept in an old lighthouse, swam deep into real sea caves, and worked with all the various wildlife the island provided. In their spare time, the girls would collect seagull eggs (they were dark green with bright orange yolks) for breakfast.
