    Cool loss-seeking and more

    Please, what is the meaning of "loss-seeking"?

    Not a clue in following paragraph, talking on a movie showing people who go to famous Père-Lachaise cemetery in order to visit one's famous artist favorite, like Proust or Méliès.

    "Forever (movie title) is an essay about how people may abide with such loss-seeking it out, savouring it, instead of turning away.

    Thank You for your attention and help.

    In my opinion loss-seeking out means unsuccessfully trying to find out more than they are told or than they already know.

    Cool Re: loss-seeking and more

    May it mean that the movie centers on the way some people keeps the searching of a feeling of loss for someone they admire, and enjoy it instead of rejecting this idea?

    Quite ambiguous, by the way. Anyway, taking into account your answer could you say to me the whole paragraph with other more plain words.

    Re: loss-seeking and more

    There should be spaces on each side of the en-rule: "... loss - seeking it out...".
