The first in a new recurring series in which members of BAM’s film programming team respond to a thought-provoking theme.
Love: it intoxicates, sustains, cuts, burns, bruises, heals, makes the world go round, and is, presumably, all you need. There’s love between people: romantic partners, families, and friends. There’s self-love. Love for animals or nature. Love for what you do. And then there’s the flip side: the heartache and pain love leaves in its absence. Love takes many forms in this wide-ranging survey of how this most fundamental yet complex of emotions has been portrayed on-screen by some of cinema’s most perceptive chroniclers of the human condition.
