Love in all its many manifestations is one of the main drivers of human relationships and, therefore, one of the most commonly used subjects in the creative arts. Love ❤️ is a portrait of love in the age of the millenials, of unlimited choice. A generation that suffers chronically from FOMO (fear of missing out & fear of missed opportunities) and fear of failure.
Inspired by the work of indie filmmakers such as Wes Anderson and Robert Altman, Love ❤️ presents a collection of diverse romances. A search for the core of this age-old emotion and its intrinsic value, in a world where everything has a price.
Love ❤️ was also inspired by Peter Handke's Beautiful Days of Aranjuez. In this piece, Handke portrays the different worlds of experience among men and women and their divergent views on love. It is about sexual experiences, childhood and memories in which both the male and female perspectives are shown.
