Dating in the Middle: The less passionate route to long lasting love

Producer/Writer: Elif Giray

About the documentary:

With the rise of internet dating, there are plenty of people to choose from. The pool has expanded but the game has changed. It’s easy to be picky when another date is a simple swipe away. A lot people are looking for that instant spark, a burst of passion, love at first sight. But passionate love is actually a young concept, historically passion and marriage were organized in two separate realms. And there are many coupling stories where the relationship evolved slowly over time. I want to make some room for these alternate stories.
