Documentary 2021 13 mins



Made possible through a unique UK-wide collaboration of national and regional publicly-funded film archives, Lost Connections draws on a century of archive footage that invites reflections on loss, loneliness, isolation, and expressions of desire, optimism, hope and renewal. It is not a film about the pandemic, it is a film about recovery, the human character, sadness and joy, what we really value, and our gradual reconnection with each other, our communities, and the world around us.

Many of the archive films featured in Lost Connections are available to view as part of BFI Player's Britain on Film resource, and are from the collections of: East Anglian Film Archive, London’s Screen Archives, Media Archive for Central England at Lincoln University, National Library of Scotland Moving Image Archive, National Library of Wales Screen and Sound Archive, North East Film Archive, Northern Ireland Screen Digital Film Archive, North West Film Archive at Manchester Metropolitan University, Screen Archive South East, SWFTA Collection - The Box Plymouth, Wessex Film and Sound Archive, Yorkshire Film Archive.
