Program 2 – Twin Stars

This program is all about love — platonic, romantic, or familial. It celebrates the multiplicity of ways humans (and in some instances, non-humans) form relational bonds filled with love, loss, support, heartache, joy, and humour. Viewed together, they reveal that our desire for companionship is a universal experience, one that binds us across the space-time continuum.
