The Art of Losing

Fashion film exploring loss and looking

The colours of natural Irish landscapes are pushed to otherworldly extremes in The Art of Losing, a short that explores the effect of losing things, places or people. We follow two girls on their listless search for an object that will not be found.

The atmospheric film, shot entirely on iPhone, fuses fashion and poetry, with the underlying question: when something is gone - where does it go?
