​中文大綱

電影從一對相差51歲、來自兩個國家的同志結婚故事開始,我們訪問了社會學家對於婚姻的看法,並帶出感情關係其實有各種可能性包含LAT、開放式關係、挪威的Sambo與Särbo等等,這些都挑戰了我們對現代關係的想像。進一步探討了與家人和解、自我探索、情感教育、共居生活、以及科技所帶來的人際關係影響。

橫跨四個國家的拍攝,包括英國社會學家、美國傳播學教授、日本共居空間的經營團隊、台灣暢銷書《情緒勒索》作者周慕姿、心理諮商師洪仲清、兩性專家許常德、「人生學校」的執行長李欣龍等等。

我們沒有要去評斷各種關係的好壞,而是給觀眾去思考各種可能性,給正在關係裡努力的你,一份面對未來的勇氣!

Synopsis

Beginning from a 75 and 23 years old gay marriage that defies both cultural and age expectations, “Relationships” starts out with sociologist Julia Carter’s viewpoints on modern marriage being the result of rules, regulations, and consumerism. Alternative relationships such as LATs (Living apart relationships), Open relationships, Swedish concepts of Särbo, Sambo challenge traditional ideas of fidelity and marital structures, while the transition from an authoritative to democratic style of education prompts rethinking of modern families and parenting.

Lack of emotional education link to subjects such as toxic masculinity, stigmas towards seeking therapy and depression. Co-living options burgeoning in Asia redefine the meaning of home and community. When social and technological change impact modern relationships, how do we move forward in this ever-changing landscape of human connection?

Collaborating with filmmakers from the US, UK, Japan and Taiwan, "Relationships" includes interviews from Dr. Julia Carter, a sociologist & senior Lecturer at UWE in London; Joseph Bayer, Assistant Professor in the School of Communication at The Ohio State University; Luke Lee, CEO of The School of Life Taipei; also Chou Mu Tzu, Counseling Psychologist & Author of "Emotional Blackmail", gathering some of the most important figures and insight in the emotional education and mental health field.
