“The Five Love Languages” was written in 1992 by Gary Chapman to show the ways people tend to express and experience romantic love. But the term has become something more than that. Love languages can mean many different things to different people and can differ according to culture, sexuality, and so many other phenomena.
How have love languages aged since people even knew what they were called? How much do we know about them now? How do we express them now? Does it relate to everyone? There’s much to learn and so many factors that go into something that seems relatively new to us now.
This project tells this multi-faceted story in, well, a multi-faceted way — through a documentary, a 360-degree video and a podcast.
