First Love


The blurb: “You never forget your first love; it’s an emotional rollercoaster that stays with you for the rest of your life,” says director Mees Peijnenburg of his latest visual imagining. “It’s a crucial event that sets a mark for future relationships.”

First Love is an experimental invocation of the director’s most emblematic motifs—heartbreak and human connection. Peijnenburg evocatively summons the disorientating joy and debilitating euphoria of love in a film that is part poetry, part aphrodisiac.

This film is part of a series by Nowness called Lovesick, exploring love and relationships.
