Inspired by Plato’s Symposium, a filmmaker makes a series of short films to explore the meaning and nature of love. He collaborates and debates with a cast of well-known figures from Canadian gay society, including Patricia Rozema, Brad Fraser, Daniel MacIvor, Tomson Highway, and Charles Pachter.
What is love? This timeless million-dollar question is explored by a diverse host of queer voices in Nik Sheehan’s cerebral yet playful documentary. Wondrously varied in their utterances, these musings take on the kaleidoscopic forms of conversation, performance art, and experimental filmmaking.
