Strange Love Affair with Ego, A
In today’s increasingly self-absorbed society and culture, how do we balance the fragile scale of self-love?
A STRANGE LOVE AFFAIR WITH EGO is a feature-length documentary about our human love affair with the ego. Driven by her own fascination for her sister’s big ego, filmmaker Ester Gould sets out to unravel a both classic and current theme: narcissism and ego. This essayistic film intertwines the director’s off-screen narrative with observational scenes and interviews.
