Love and Engineering for Valentine's Day on Access Utah
For Valentine’s Day, Access Utah Brings you the story of four engineers with one problem: How to find the right woman in real life?
In his previous documentary RULES OF SINGLE LIFE, Bulgaria-born, Helsinki-based engineer-turned-director Tonislav Hristov examined his own divorce and that of four friends – wondering what had gone wrong. His latest film, Love & Engineering takes this concept one step further, as it follows Atanas, a Bulgarian 3D engineer living in Finland.
Love & Engineering follows four desperate geeks around thirty looking for analog love. Disconnected from normal social life, but hard-wired to reproduce, they are willing guinea pigs in experiments by their mentor Atanas. A fellow geek and a Bulgarian 3D engineer with a PhD, Atanas wants to help others in the name of science. On the basis of his own experiences, he sets out to structure a (pseudo) scientific formula for love and dating. With Atanas’ help, Todor, Tuomas, Markus and Andon try to hack real life, as the camera tracks their expectations, hopes, disappointments and frustrations. A film about true love in times of pixelated communication. Director Tonislav Hristove joins us from Hellsinki for Thursday's Access Utah.
