2D Love: Maybe you've been looking in the wrong dimension...


A timely parable about human’s growing intimacy with technology, this short documentary provides a rare window into a burgeoning world of a young man grappling with love in all its dimensions. As humans become increasingly intimate with various forms of media, a number of people are entering into relationships with 2-D personas, often known as their ‘waifu’. This topic intrigued Christchurch born filmmaker Abigail Egden who completed her anthropology thesis on the topic on 2016 at the University of Canterbury.

2D Love is a perspective on an emotional landscape not normally found in Auckland. The world of anime, cosplay and virtual reality intrigue in this thought provoking short documentary that challenges conventional notions of love and life.
