Video Essay: What Are These Things Called Love?
Fusion, June 2015
Continuing my series of films in collaboration with Fusion, this essay is based on a chapter in the Roman Krznaric book "The Wonderbox: Curious Histories of how to live". It reveals that the concept of a soul mate is a relatively new invention, and potentially a dangerous one, and thus invites the audience to consider creating their own version of love fit for our 21st century lives. This film proved challenging to make as I wrestled with creating an emotional experience for the audience and not just an educational one. Ultimately I feel I failed, but I learned a lot about myself and the nature of storytelling on the way.
