Film notes

No Love Lost is an intriguing tale of love, obsession and unyielding prejudice.

We wanted to convey a multi-dimensional and engrossing story of the isolation of hatred in a world where love overcomes differences and chose the world of our story to be an urban setting rather than going across geographical borders. For us the underlying subtext was ‘we alienate our self by hating while believing we are alienating the person or thing we hate’.

Playing with the notion of love and hate we knew that one of the main themes of the film was identity and London was the perfect city to explore this due to its status as a melting pot of races, religions and creeds with invisible barriers of hate politics keeping different people apart. Hence it was not merely about race and religion for us as identity was signified by gender too.

In today’s world where prevailing identities that many at large assign hate to, in society and mass media, we chose to delve into the dynamic of a Jewish boy in romance with a Muslim girl while being stalked by another girl.
