title The Science of Love
description This cute and funny short film features two professors who fight about a neuroscientific explanation of love but research its pleasures together after a “battle of egos and intellect, swords and [fabulous] stilettos.” It also challenges stereotypes of scientists and is pretty accurate about the research it describes, since it was funded by a grant from the Sloan Foundation to do just that. This film is my favourite of the many cultural artifacts with the overused label “science of love”. I’d mentioned it before when it was a short film on the festival circuit, but it’s now online in its entirety. A must see.
