Lafayette: The Lost Hero World Premiere Tomorrow Night
 
(Lafayette, La.) - The Friends of Louisiana Public Broadcasting (LPB), La Fondation Louisiane, the Marquis de Lafayette 250th Anniversary Committee and the Lafayette Consolidated Government are producing the World Premiere screening of the new documentary Lafayette: The Lost Hero. The event is set for Wednesday, September 8 at the LITE (Louisiana Immersive Technologies Enterprise) Center in Lafayette, Louisiana.
 
Lafayette: The Lost Hero is an historical detective story. Who was the Marquis de Lafayette? How and why did he come to America? This film tells the story of the life and legend of an intriguing, neglected and controversial figure who left France at the age of 19 and fought courageously for the independence of the United States. Along the way, we discover the story of Lafayette’s fascinating wife, Adrienne De Noailles, and the arranged marriage that became a great romance and a profound partnership in revolution. Lafayette: The Lost Hero also explores the ideals of the Enlightenment that Lafayette stood for - ideals that played out in the compelling narrative of his life and became a foundation for America’s core values of equality and freedom. The film searches for the truth about this elusive personality, and why he matters today.

No one in recorded history has suffered a fate quite like Lafayette. Once, he was the most famous man in the world; today, few people know who he was or what he accomplished. Ever since he died, there has been conflict over the true meaning of his accomplishments. It is time to re-evaluate his crucial role in the establishment of America’s democracy.
 
Lafayette: The Lost Hero was filmed using an innovative mix of documentary techniques, structured around the quest of Lafayette's descendant, Sabine Renault Sabloniere, to discover the true story of her ancestor.
