VELO is a short film by Eugene and Louise Studio, with the support of the Flemish Audiovisual Fund (VAF).
Lucien has lost his wife recently. To escape the loneliness at home he takes out his bike daily for a ride. Today however, Lucien is forced to take another route. He encounters a girl that will take him back to his youth. He desperately clings on to this moment, only to realise it's meant to pass.
Velo is a story about losing your dearest and creating routines to cope with your loss. It's about loneliness and how you cannot avoid to recognise your loved one in a total stranger. You cling on to this sparkle of hope, if only for a few seconds. And then you realise this moment is ephemeral.
