Who is that one friend (or maybe a few when you consider different times of your life)who makes you stop and wonder wistfully exactly what he or she is doing now that you are no longer in touch? The one whom when you meet again after a long separation, you just stand there and look at each other and nod knowingly, because words aren't necessary or adequate to describe what you have shared. If you identify with this, you might want to check out "Short Stack: Lost & Found," a collection of five short films about friendship. This hour-long production might not prove as poignant as the one YOU would produce about the subject of friendship, but it is at least a look at a subject that most of us come to realize only gets more important with age.
