A Sisters Call

In 1997, Rebecca Schaper tracked down her brother Call, a man with paranoid schizophrenia who'd been lost without a trace for 20 years. At that point he was homeless, living alone and prone to hallucinations. Schaper, a nature photographer, embarked on a 14-year attempt to "bring her brother back," according to her Vimeo page. She documented the process in a feature length documentary that's currently touring festivals and small screenings. Check out the trailer for "A Sister's Call" below.
