MatingLina Maria Mannheimer
What happens when you follow two young people’s turbulent love lives for a year? Mating is an intimate portrait of two millennials who grow up in a world where love is increasingly situated in a digital landscape. Is there still intimacy in a world of Facebook, Instagram and Tinder?
A slice from the lives of two young people. Swedish Naomi (22) and Edvin (20) agreed with director Lina Mannheimer to give weekly interviews during a year. Mannheimer followed them on their journey to adulthood, a journey full of challenges around studies, work, relationships with parents, friends, love ... especially love. The development of their digital personas is not unimportant in the contemporary era. Naomi and Edvin balance on the thin line between their public and private selves. An intimate observation of the millennial generation in which dreams, relationships, fears and challenges are openly addressed, with an unexpected twist.
