Lost for Words

A short film by Elcid Asaei


After 3 months and 3 days of lockdown separation, Victoria and Nadia are meeting up to break up. On their way they invent all sorts of absurd reasons why they should end things, but upon reaching their meeting point at a park bench where they have shared so many moments together, the memories of their bond places a big doubt on their prior intentions.

"Lovely use of colour to complement a beautifully written story with compelling actresses."

Elcid Asaei Elcid is a self-taught and award winning director, writer and editor. His films crossover experimental and narrative genres, ranging socially-orientated, bold and thought-provoking subject matters. Passionate about visual storytelling, Elcid followed an MA in Film Theory at UCL with a spell in online journalism and photography, before making his filmmaking debut with the short documentary, 'Revolutionary Roads' (2010), which premiered at Sheffield Doc/Fest and went on to win Current TV’s Short Cuts prize. Elcid has since gone on to create a number of visually striking shorts, from ‘PIRANHA’ (2014) to ‘UNSKIN’ (2018), with each project successively more ambitious. In response to the Covid-19 lockdowns, Elcid created a global arts community video diary for creatives to share their voices with each other, and ‘We Are Not Alone’, is shaping up to be a historical and cultural record of the crisis. Elcid also went on to write and direct ‘Lost for Words’, a dramedy short film inspired by and set during the pandemic.
