Mating (2020)

The film paints an intimate portrait in which the main subjects share with us their dreams, the nature of their relationships, their turn-ons, and their greatest challenges and fears. Mating investigates how these digital natives navigate the creation of identity, and how they negotiate the porous border between their public and private selves. We follow them, how they utilize the images, and the performance and engineering of their various realities in their everyday lives. What are they doing, how do they do it, and why?

Production notes

For a year, Naomi and Edvin film themselves; the result is an intimate and raw portrait of their lives. They meet, fall in love and break up. However they don’t give up on each other, and a unique friendship emerges. Their filming allows us behind the façade of social media – or any other kind. We get to witness the uncensored thoughts of two 20-year-olds about life’s challenges and relationships.
